Profusely illustrated with black and white photographs, this book champions the female workers of the German Democratic Republic's postal system. An excellent example of GDR propaganda, of particular interest due to its focus on female workers and the specifics of the postal system.
This item is unique as it contains numerous type-written and hand written notes, hand pasted throughout the book. These notes contain additions and corrections for a proposed second edition. Not only do these notes give great insight into the subject of the female postal workers of the GDR, they also provide insight into the publishing process for propaganda titles such as this. A truly unique collectors item.
