Printer: 2nd Soviet Typography [Photo-Lithography] Workshop, Kiev —

The 2nd Soviet Typography Workshop was located at 4 Pushkin Street in Kiev, Ukraine. Over a period of management changes, this printer was also known as the Photo-Lithography Workshop as well as the Soviet Printing Office.

Publisher: State Publishing House, Kiev — Государственное издательство, Киев

The State Publishing House had its origins in Imperial Russia as the Royal Print Yard in St. Petersburg. As the Red Army controlled more provinces and cities in former Imperial Russia, the State Publishing House developed offices outside St. Petersburg. Kiev was a major city of Imperial Russia as well as of the USSR. Once Soviet control was established in Ukraine, publishing was concentrated in the State Publishing House that existed from 1919-1930. Today, Kiev is the capital of the Ukrainian Republic.
