Does anyone know of a good source of information for early 20th century Russian type?
For examples of pre-revolutionary typography (before 1917)http://englishrussia.com/?p=2203
For avant-garde designs (before the 30's)you can a look at some works by Lissitzky, Rodchenko and Stepanova.
There are a few excellent books with examples of popular typefaces, but they are mostly in Russian.
