Printer Notes: Prior to Soviet nationalization, the 1st Exemplary Workshop was the Sharapov-Sytin Partnership in Moscow at 28 Valovaia Street. The 1st Exemplary Workshop was placed under the Poligrafkniga Trust, owing to the fact that in 1921, the Soviet Government consolidated the best printing houses into state-owned trusts. In turn, the 1st Exemplary Workshop printed jobs for the state publisher Ogiz (Association of State Book and Magazine Publishers).
