Printer Notes: The Krasnii Proletarii Typography Workshop (A.K.A. 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Workshop) was located at 16 Krasnoproletarskaia Street, Moscow. It was placed under the Poligrafkniga (Book and Magazine Printing) Trust around 1920. Historically, Krasnii Proletarii printing was first under the ownership of the Russian entrepreneur Ivan Kushnerev. He founded the Ivan Kushnerev & Company Printing Shop in 1869 in Moscow. When Kushnerev died in 1896 his printing company was one of the largest in Imperial Russia. His print shop was nationalized by the Soviets in 1919 and consigned to the Printing Section of the Moscow Economic Council. It was then re-named the 3rd State Typolithography Workshop and, for a brief period, it was the 20th State Typolithography Workshop. It became the 3rd Krasnii Proletarii Book Printing Plant when its location (on Pimenovskaia Street) was re-named Krasnoproletarskaia (Red Proletarian) Street. The printing workshop retained the Krasnii Proletarii moniker while management (via a series of state trusts) varied over the next fifty years.
