In our never-ending search for beautiful Cuban archives, I stumbled upon this rare 1964 propaganda book, published in the German Democratic Republic (GDR). The images are powerful portraits of yesteryears idealism post-revolution (only 5 years after Fidel’s takeover). The art direction has a sharp utilitarian layout that captures the eye. Here’s a peek at the vintage volume.
