V is for Victory!

Just in case I was not the only reader puzzled by the frequent references to "V-mail" throughout John Horne Burns' The Gallery, here is a link to a Wikipedia article that explains how the system works. (Really pretty ingenious!)

My Google search also turned up a sample V-mail created as (presumably) a teacher resource for a class studying the novel.

Fascinating process...a precursor to our current digital age and printing on-demand. I can't imagine it was very cost-effective.

I would love to see some examples of censored materials!
