The 15th State Typography Workshop began its history as the lithographic partnership of R.R. Golike and A.I. Vil’borg. It was located at 11 Zvenigorodskaia Street in St. Petersburg. The firm of Golike and Vil’borg became the 15th State Typography Workshop after Soviet nationalization and in 1922, the workshop was placed into the Poligraftrust where it became the Petropechat' Typolithography named for Fedorov. Ivan Fedorov (c.1525-1583) is often referred to as the first Russian printer. The workshop carried the Federov name until around 1934 and, in the decades following, it was also called the 3rd Typography Workshop.
The Petrograd Consumer Commune (shortened to Petrokommuna and Petrogubkommuna) was founded by the Council of People's Commissars in March 1919 during the Russian Civil War. Its creation was fostered by the conditions of war communism and its adverse affect on accessibility of consumer goods. The graphic arts section of Petrogubkommuna was under the aegis of the Bureau for Design and Production of Artistic Diagrams (BMKhD) that was organized with support from the Russian art critic, Nikolai Punin. Petrogubkommuna operated until around September 1921.
