    Венец. Добро пожаловать в Идеальное (“Venets: Welcome to the Ideal”) is an investigative research into the nature of ‘the ideal’ in USSR, based on the story of the Venets high-rise hotel, built in Ulyanovsk in 1970. In 2017, with the support of the VAC Foundation, the book was published in English and sold in a small print run of 500 copies at independent bookstores in Europe. For the past six months, Gluschenkoizdat has been working on the Russian-language version of the book, and now we are finally ready to announce the pre-order of the new edition. Venets is fully done and is now in the second stage of proofreading.

    The book was transformed into a large newspaper format (400×578 mm, 36 pages). We’ve been able to preserve most of the photographs, all texts and documents, and even added some more.

    For the typography, Steinbeck and Quant Antiqua are used throughout.

    We invite you to participate in the crowdfunding campaign of this new edition of Venets and to pre-order the novel-newspaper on the Planeta.ru website.
