Typography named for I.V. Stalin of the Pravda Newspaper, Moscow
Pravda (Truth) was the main newspaper of the Communist Party of the USSR until 1991. In publication since 1912, the paper moved its offices to Moscow shortly after the October Revolution. During the mid-1930s, Pravda moved into new offices at 24 Pravda Street in Moscow and it shared offices with the periodicals Trud (Work), Sel’skaia zhizn’ (Village Life), and the youth newspaper Komsomol’skaia Pravda (Komsomol Truth). The lower level of the building housed the printing plant.
