Wrong? It’s *beautiful*! So there must be something very right about it…

Could you put up a large character set?

The Cyrillic: I’m not qualified to say much, but I wonder, is this the “cursive” hand that’s no longer in fashion? It reminds me a little bit of Pertsov Skoropis (which won at the Kyrillitsa ‘99 awards).

Beautiful, indeed! It’s really quite lovely, and
for some reason, PsyOps comes to mind if you’re
considering distribution. RXC doesn’t just run a
foundry, I hear he acts as a mentor for designers
with potential to produce some premium final
products. Give it some thought.

I like the raised period for added handwritten
feel, but maybe it’s just a tad too high.

Hrant is right, we need to see a full character
set and maybe a bit larger to make up for the
low-res of the Web.

Great work, Andrij. There is a real shortage of
modern handwritten scripts that really look like
they were made by hand and not a computer.
Keep working toward that end and you’ll have
something unique.

thank you, Hrant and Stephen, for your opinion.
here is latin charset:
full

i see that my love for curved ends of stems make for my bad effect especially in cyrillic. i have in mind to re-build lot of characters.

Stephen, thank for idea about PsyOps, very interesting link. but i think they haven’t big interest for non-latin fonts.

Hrant, about Pertsov Skoropis. Pertsov i think makes a modern look on old-styles (before 1700)official cyrillic writing.

i want make new script over traditional ukrainian handwriting, especially of Kozak age (1600-1800)
i hope i can do this :)

thank you and sorry for my english again :)

Nice. Your lc “q” is killer, and that “s” is great too. But what happened to that *amazing* lc “y”?!

> PsyOps … haven’t big interest for non-latin fonts.

Maybe that’s why they need *you*?
Just talk to Rodrigo and see what happens.

Hrant —

There was no killer lc y in the original sample. That’s a classic Latin text; no ‘y’ in Latin. (Andrij has used an excerpt from Cicero’s de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum — the original text from which the familiar ‘lorem ipsum …’ is a corruption.)

Take another look: Are you referring to the ‘qu’ combination? Hmmm.

I think the new ‘y’ is better. Maybe a case for alternates.

Is the spacing set to connect the glyphs by default?

Have you tested letter combinations and kerns yet?

:->
Of course! I guess that’s what you get for obsessing about type: you don’t realize that “oyia” can’t be a word…

So chalk it down to a happy coincidental observation: please make the tail of the “y” more flamboyant!

Oh yeah, this is going to be a b*itch to kern, huh…
But it’ll be worth it! Very nice.

A few years back, I got Richard Lipton’s Sloop (sold by Font Bureau). Now, looking at Sloop’s metrics, I am shocked. It succeeds with an amazing number of kerning pairs: 0.

Andrij, you might want to check it out. And great stylish stuff here.

I have just expressed how much I like Andrij Script in a private mail, but I wished to do it in public, too. I like the freshness and raw quality of the first sample in the cyrillic version. I hope you haven’t changed it so much, Andrij!
Please post a new textsample!

magnifico.

Please allow the rest of the world to use this marvellous font.

A few alternative characters such as swash ascenders and descenders would be great.
