Father's Day has come and gone--now they release Volume 81 of the complete works of Kim Il Sung!

Some folks will probably sell you the whole set for a few potatoes:
Among them are works "New Year Address", "On Some Measures for Solving the Problem of Electricity",
The measures must not have been too effective: electricity is still with us.
"Let Us Take Effective Measures to Increase the Steel Production", "On Some Problems Arising in the Improvement of Economic Work" and "On Some Measures for Putting on a Normal Basis the Production at Industrial Establishments and Improving the Standard of People's Living" which clarify in detail the tasks facing different fields to push ahead with the socialist economic construction and the ways for carrying them out. [...]
The cultural achievements of the DPRK don't stop there. There was also an art exhibition. Let's just say it was a bit single-minded about the subject matter:
Displayed in the venue are at least 60 art works created by artists of art studios in capital and local areas.

Seen in the centre of the venue is an art work depicting the President standing against the background of Mt. Paektu, the holy mountain of the revolution.

An acryl painting "The shining victory of the Arduous March", Korean paintings "Here is the forefront before you, leader", "Samjiyon Revolutionary Battle Site in Spring " and other works impressively deal with the great personality of Generalissimo Kim Il Sung who defeated two imperialisms in one generation and achieved the liberation and freedom and independence of the country, bringing happiness to the people.

An oil painting "The great leader Comrade Kim Il Sung visits the Kangson Steel Works to start the Chollima movement", an acryl painting "Visiting himself even an underground cutting face", a watercolor painting "Sitting knee to knee with a peasant," etc. depict the revolutionary career and immortal exploits of the President who ushered in a new era of prosperity of the country and built a socialist power, independent in politics, self-supporting in economy and self-reliant in national defence, on this land.

An oil painting "Longing for Father Generalissimo" and other works reflect the ardent yearning of the Korean people for the fatherly leader of the nation. [...]
How can you not love a painting entitled "Longing for Father Generalissimo"?
