Knigospilka (All-Ukrainian Cooperative Book Merchandising and Publishing Union)

Книгоспiлка (Всеукраинский кооперативный книжно-издательский союз)

Knigospilka was the All-Ukrainian Cooperative Book Merchandising and Publishing Union. Based in Kharkov, Ukraine, it operated from 1920 to 1929. While it occasionally published posters, its chief task was turning out books and literature for use in Consumers' Societies, Workers' and Transport Societies, and for the rural population in Ukraine. To that end, the publisher played a role in the implementation of Communist Party policy in the countryside. After 1922, Knigospilka concentrated on publishing informational literature concerning agriculture in the rural cooperative movement.
