In 1966 Chairman Mao's regular use of stamps as a form of propaganda reached a new level. The 1966 Cultural Revolution Games commemorative issue depicts athletes reading Mao’s “Little Red Book”, or, to give its full title, “Quotations from Chairman Mao Zedong”. It contains 267 aphorisms from the Communist Chinese leader, teaching his Communist ideals. It was widely distributed during the Cultural Revolution, and with more than a billion copies published it is one of the most widely produced books of all time.
