dear typophiles!

i am glad to tell you about new original book about Cyrillic, and especially about Ukrainian handwrited letters. Vitalij Mitchenko -- artist, calligrapher, teacher and author of this book -- pays strong attention to our rich historical heritage, especially to Ukrainian skoropys, and to works of modern calligraphers. here is some pictures from this book:

Мітченко В.С.
Естетика українського рукописного шрифту. — Київ: Грамота, 2007
ISBN 978-966-349-099-1

українська, як можна здогадатись з обкладинки.
Ukrainian only. making all copies in edition in same language is a usual practice, isn't?

no, i read only „Современный шрифт” by Villy Toots long time ago.
btw, Estonian and Ukrainian traditions is very, very different ;))
