POLIGRAFKNIGA

// ПОЛИГРАФКНИГА // Книжно-журнальный полиграфический трест // Кnizhno-zhurnal'nyi poligraficheskii trest // Book and Magazine Printing Houses Trust

In 1921, the Soviet Union consolidated the most productive printing houses into state-owned trusts in order to centralize book and periodical printing. Poligrafkniga managed most elements of the printing industry from production to sales. It also operated as a contract printer with publishers (chiefly the ones state-owned) so they would use printing houses operating under the Poligrafkniga banner.
