Philately Fridays: Bulgaria, 1980, 1986

2 from Bulgaria, all about books. I'll forever be a sucker for a good fat-lined illustration. Can anyone translate these?

here's a translation for the top one:
СЪЮЗ НА БЪЛГАРСКИТЕ УЧИТЕЛИ - Bulgarian Teachers Union
ПОЩА - Post (service)
НР БЪЛГАРИЯ - People's Republic of Bulgaria

the "ст" is the abbreviation for "stotinki", the Bulgarian coins.

And for the bottom one, the text from bottom left to top right: XVII th International Exhibition Sofia Book Fair
