The holiday issue was published in November, which is according to many people, the most depressing month of the year. The antithesis of carefree and sunny summer days. The format of the edition was 16 postcards, the front of which was the actual content of the magazine. Topics here include a crossword puzzle which requires two postcards to solve (passwords and answer boxes are separated into two parts), first aid instructions, and a photo report made up of dozens of photos that are only readable with a magnifying glass. The reverse is a classic space for writing travel greetings and a space for the recipient’s address. 

The issue was realized within the framework of a grant from the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.
