2006. Unreleased.

I spent a few days in Russia in late 2005. As clichéed as it sounds, my time there really opened my eyes to the shapes and rhythms of the Cyrillic alphabet. I turned the faint possibility of a client needing to set Russian headlines in Farnham (they didn't end up needing it, unfortunately) into an opportunity to play around with Baroque Cyrillic forms.

Display Regular for now. Display size in Light, Regular, Medium, Bold and Black weights, with italics and small caps, plus Swash Italic for Regular weight. Text size in Regular, Semibold and Bold weights, with italics and small caps, eventually.
