Haags Gemeentemus.), p.64: "Ook in 1929 verscheen een boekje onder de titel 'Ook post voor u?', dat reclame maakte voor de luchtpost en waarin Piet Zwart vindingrijke typografische vondsten toepaste om de PTT-boodschap zo beeldend mogelijk te begeleiden"; "De acht rechterpagina's bestemt Zwart hoofdzakelijk voor tekst en hij combineert deze met enkele aansprekende kreten en feiten in een speelse combinatie van zwart en rood. Op de linkerpagina's leeft hij zich voor het eerst volledig uit in fotomontages zoals hij die een jaar geleden in het Russische paviljoen van Lissitzky in Keulen heeft leren bewonderen (...) Hoezeer Lissitzky's werk nog op zijn netvlies staat, blijkt uit een bladzijde waarin de snelheid van luchtpost wordt vergeleken met die van andere vervoersmiddelen. De beeldstatistiek gaat vergezeld van een wereldbol en twee gebogen transparante stroken, een beeld dat hij nog kent van de laatste pagina uit diens Van twee kwadraten" (Brentjens).
