In May 1949, the Republican Directorate for Printing, Publishing and Book Trade (Ukrpoligrafizdat) was created by order of the Council of Ministers of the Ukrainian SSR. The Ukrpoligrafizdat plant was located in Kharkov, Ukrainian SSR at 6, 8 Donets-Zakharzhevskaia Street. The plant was named in honor of the late Mikhail Vasilyevich Frunze (1885-1925) the People's Commissar for Military and Naval Affairs.
Iskusstvo was the Art Publishing House (A.K.A. Visual Arts Publishing) that was created in 1936 from Ogiz-Izogiz (State Art and Literature Publishing House). It disseminated books and journals dealing with graphic design and the fine arts, and it issued numerous posters. Since the Iskusstvo banner was part of the State Printing Works in Leningrad (St. Petersburg) and Moscow, its two main offices were located in those two cities.
