Thank you again for another wonderful set. The dogs in Volvo 1800S instruction book cover look like one of those creepy hellish demon dog found in late 70's Japanese manga. Probably because they were drawn as if they have been starved to near death.

My word, that is a wonderful selection. They just keep getting better! I picked out the Volvo imagery as well, but the Nazi propaganda film cannot help but make an impression! (Considering I have Jewish blood in my family, maybe it's just fear...)

I really dig the Polish Radio Station! That would be a really cool place to work.
