The periodical was founded in 1921, later it merged with “The All-Russian Printer” to be released just as “Printer” from November 1922 to May 1923. Then, the original title returned for three years. This set witnessed a new change of the title – ‘Printer’ No. 50/51, 1926 came out instead of ‘Moscow Printer’ No. 47/48, 1926(according to p.3 of ‘Printer’ No.50/51). The edition ceased publication in 1930. The magazine was focused on workers of the Soviet printing industry. It encompasses technical

Gerbek before 1905 – a group photograph of the earliest employees supplements. Issue No. 32/33 contains an article “Comrade Trotsky on Printing Technique (Excerpt from a speech for students)”. Issue #36/37 features tables on wage standards in printing houses by 1926. The magazine is well-illustrated with photographs
of workers collectively, during sports events, excursions and conferences, pictures of children on resort, as well as various printing machines.

Issue No. 15 features 13 examples of typesetting designs produced at Nizhpoligraf printing house (Nizhny Novgorod). The text “Renaissance of Typesetting Cover” chronicles some Moscow events where Nikolai Ilyin (1894-1954) elaborated on typesetting designs. Some of such works were reproduced.
