Book of Letters from Аа to Яя, Third Edition (in Russian)

In the Book of Letters, its author carefully analyzes each letter of the Russian alphabet, talks about why our written characters are not as beautiful as their Latin counterparts, and what the designer (not necessarily a professional typographer) can do about it. The book focuses mainly on the Cyrillic letters, but in addition, it also touches upon the Greco-Roman roots of our alphabet.

The third edition has the same content as the second edition which saw the author expand the introduction and chapters dedicated to individual letters and significantly expanded the number of historic examples. In addition to history, types, styles, individual properties and anatomy of letters, a lot of attention is paid to logotypes and different elements of typography and visual communication, so the book will not only be interesting to type designers and typographers, but to a wide range of designers and decorators.
