This is a book about letters. Mainly about the Cyrillic letters, but it also touches upon the Greco-Roman roots of our alphabet. The 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.
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.
