Last summer I found this schoolbag on the flea market and bought it because of it’s strong graphics and colourblocking. Later I saw the obove picture on the right in the book Beyond the Wall. Art and Artifacts from the GDR. With the knowledge that I own a bag from recent history I am even more satisfied than with the bag by itself. The book Beyond the wall, from Taschen is very interestring and shows the design and graphics typical of the GDR.
