  • “The best-kept collection of Cold War memorabilia.”

    — Vice
  • “A comprehensive pictorial history.”

    — The New York Times
  • “…an extremely detailed story on the daily life in the DDR, probably a more coherent one than its inhabitants could ever tell. It is a fascinating and rich (with its weight of 5kg) source of the visual culture of that era, which is definitely making its comeback today…Inspirational goldmine for artists, designers (and hipsters), it will look majestic on your coffee table and it will certainly keep you amused for a long time. A real must-have.”

    — Happy Famous Artists, London
  • “…quite possibly the greatest such collection in the world.”

    — The Atlantic
  • “This magnificently produced volume offers a substantive contribution to (Cold War) debates and is an invaluable aid to a deeper understanding of a crucial chapter in Germany’s turbulent history.”

    — The New York Times Sunday Book Review, New York
