VEB Postgeschichte
The pre-printed envelopes of the businesses of the GDR show several things....an economy and government which has vanished, the continuing development through state ownership then amalgamation of the pre-war businesses in what became the Russian Zone, and the typography and logos used by the GDR's designers. In addition, the use of ZKD (Zentraler Kurier Dienst) markings and stamps shows the paranoia which was necessary during the cold war- it was a secure postal service within the everyday Deutsche Post.
