Iskra Revolutsii (Revolutionary Spark) Typography Workshop, Moscow
Iskra Revolutsii was a Moscow printer that was also known as the 15th Iskra Revolutsii Typography Workshop. Over the decades, the printer was under a host of printing trusts such as Soiuzpoligrafprom (All-Union Association of Printing Enterprises) that handed jobs for the state publisher Glavizdat (Main Administration of Publishing Houses, Printing Industry and Book Trade). Iskra Revolutsii was also managed by Glavpoligrafizdat (Main Administration for Matters of Polygraphic Industry Publishing and Book Selling), a trust created in 1949 to oversee printing, publishing and book selling in the USSR. Subsequently, the creation of Glavpoligrafizdat supplanted OGIZ (Association of State Book and Magazine Publishers) as the USSR’s main publishing entity in the post-World War II era.
