Imprenta: Mospoligraf (Moscow Polygraphic), Moscow — Мосполиграф, Москва

Mospoligraf was a state-owned printing trust located in Moscow. When the Soviet Union formulated a plan in 1921 to consolidate the nation’s largest and best printing operators into state-owned trusts; Mospoligraf was organized in 1922 to carry out consolidation of the Moscow printing industry. With a staff of over two thousand, Mospoligraf was the second-largest printing trust organized in Moscow outside of the Mospechat’ trust, and it oversaw a myriad of houses under local printing sections such as the 2nd Chromolithography Workshop, the 5th Lithography Workshop, the 7th Typography Workshop and the 26th Lithography Workshop, to name a few. After a reorganization, the trust leased its operators. For example, two printers under Mospoligraf- the 1st Exemplary Print Shop and the 20th Print Shop (Krasnii Proletarii)-- were both leased to Gosizdat publishing. Throughout the history of the USSR, government trusts led the printing industry in terms of ownership, but efforts to consolidate the industry (as a whole) remained disjointed.

Editorial: Vostokkino (Eastern Cimema) — Востоккино

Vostokkino was a trust formed in 1926 out of three film companies, Tatkino, Nemkino and Chuvashkino. It produced and exhibited movies in the regions of Central Asia and Siberia. While Vostokkino produced cinema and handled some motion picture marketing of the films under its banner, it did not typically produce political posters. The Vostokkino trust was terminated between 1934 and 1935 due in large part to inferior cinema technology and a lack of viable film scripts.
