Hi friends, I'm currently moving, so orders may be delayed slightly.

Farewell USSR

El Lissitzky. USSR. An Album Illustrating the State Organization and National Economy of the U. S. S. R. 1939. First edition.
It is a bittersweet day at Zsbs as I say goodbye to one of my favorite books. USSR, An Album Illustrating the State Organization and National Economy, a book of visual statistics designed by El Lissitzky, was my first major book purchase (costing me more than a month's rent, which was daunting as my wages at the time were $12/hour). I bought it in 2014, when I was a clueless neophyte, because I loved the look of it and found the content fascinating. Five years later (to the day) it is my first online retail sale. It found a much better home than I could provide, but my booth at every future book fair will be much less interesting without it.
