English language version of issue #10 1934 USSR in Construction. USSR in Construction was a constructivist publication dedicated to construction projects and industry in the USSR, published in Russian, French, English, and German 1930 to 1941 as a collaboration between some of the most esteemed Soviet artists of the time. This issue is dedicated to the epic of the Soviet steamship SS Chelyuskin, which set out to the Arctic in 1933 in order to research what vessels would be able to travel the Northern maritime route along Siberia to the Bering Strait. The SS Chelyuskin was caught in icefields and sunk - the crew escaped onto the ice and were rescued two months later by plane. The issue featues a great montage of the homecoing of the crew, showing Stalin shaking hands with the crewmembers, with crowds in Red Square, the Kremlin, and Lenin's tomb in the background. Contains great photos of arctic expeditions, ice floes, aircraft and the rescue mission. El Lissitzy designed the composition, and it features artwork by Z Deineka and Deni. Good condition, staining.
