N. S. Troshin was a Soviet painter, important illustrator of "production books" for children with Olga Deineko, and the chief designer of SSSR na stroike [USSR Under Construction] from 1930 to 1941. He oversaw the ambitious O Zheleznodorozhnom transporte SSSR for the VIIth Congress of the Soviets. This ambitious Constructivist photo book was a brilliant tour de force of agitprop, utilizing almost every modern printing process available in Russia at the time. The brass bas-relief locomotive on the front cover was named "Stalin."
