Political Messages on Postcards?

Johann Wolfang Von Goethe
Elective Affinities, 1809
(Bibliophilia: 100 Literary Postcards)

Postcards can carry all kind of messages on the back... But also on the front. I cannot think of a theme which there is no postcard about. Can you?

Class in a Capitalist Society, 1980

Cover by Jones Thompson

Peace, Ervin Bossanyi, 1957

South East Transept
Canterbury Cathedral, UK

Oberbaum Bridge, Berlin, Germany
(It connects the Eastern and Western parts of the city during the Cold War. It was used to exchange political prisoners that West Germany sought free.)

Postcards sent by Laura (the UK) and Lioba (Germany).

    1. I like the adjective "thought-provoking" :)
