Cigarette Paper from Ukraine – Cover by Telingater

Proizvodstvo papirosnoi bumagi [On the production of cigarette paper].

Moscow: Gosudarstvennoe Lesnoe Tekhnicheskoe Izdatel'stvo, 1933. Octavo (17 × 12.6 cm). Original staple-stitched decorative wrappers in the constructivist style by Solomon Telingater (Telingator); 55, [1] pp. With seventeen technical diagrams and drawings in the text. About very good.

Evidently an occasional work for a highly specialized publisher, the wrappers are attributed to the prolific artist, designer, and typographer Solomon Telingater. They playfully incorporate the theme of translucent cigarette paper, two pieces of which (partially overlapping) are "superimposed" onto the printed title.

According to the preface, the book was the first exposition of the methods and equipment used to produce cigarette paper in the Soviet Union, with numerous technical drawings and photographs of machines. It sheds light on all parts of production and closes with a section on recent innovations, especially those made by the Ukrainian branch of the All-Union Research and Production Institute for Papermaking (VNIIB).
