    This isn't actually true. For a start, a large number of his examples
    predate the division of the country, and it was not a geographical
    division either as several of these are from western areas such as
    Frankfurt am Main and Munich. As for the more recent examples, it is not
    surprising if most are from eastern areas as that is where Andreas
    lives. But Hoffmann und Campe is a Hamburg publisher but still put
    NU▀SCHALE on a cover - for a larger picture see
    http://www.hoffmann-und-campe.de/go/f43e1427-508b-af43-915dfbf1212b10ad
    and click on the book. And another example is from Frankfurter Allgemeine.
