a latin version would familiar to a historian. some earls diplomatic charters got a similiar script, e.g.

a font could look like that:

Henricvs quintus sacrae trinitatis graria rex romanorum

Fixed.
Sorry about the mess-up, I was in a bit of a hurry and misread your name.

Oh my! These are truly wonderful. I've been trying to get my hands on Russian calligraphy books for a while to learn about this kind of type but they seem hard to find (the research assistant at my university doubts their existence ...).

In the meantime, could you do my name? Thanks!

Thank you!

I chose my name, in part, because it sounded like it COULD be Russian...or Greek...or almost anything.

Thanks to you, Ivan, I was inspired by this new (to me) form of writing, so I took out my calligraphy pen a few weeks ago to write a card to friend. Let me pass it on to everyone here: с новым годом !

(Happy New Year!)

Ivan, if you would be kind enough I'ld love to see my name in this amazing creation of yours. It shouldn't be too hard--just one letter different from your own name. Thanks!

Hi,
A while ago I readthis post. I am looking for this vector file as I'm a student of Slavic philology and would like to use it in some of my works (so non-commercial). Im willing to pay a fee if requested.

It seems Ivan Gulkov vanished, I cannot contact him and his personal page is not updated since a couple of years now.

Does anyone have this source or a link to it ? I'd appreciate it lots.

Thanks,
Miguel

Hi. I love this, very artist and secretive.

Could you possible do:

Получить в фургоне

for me please.

I'm experimenting with some artwork and it would be amazing.

Hello, when i first saw your design i just had to make an account to ask you: could you make a design for me that spells "искусство"?
