Iskra (spark or flash) is a new daring sans serif typeface by talented designer Tom Grace, who has already published two interesting typefaces with TypeTogether, the blackletter Givry and Alizé, a chancery italic.
Iskra, containing several width and weight variations, was conceived to challenge the limits between utilitarian and decorative. Sporting a low-contrast profile, it is a study of bridled energy in the Cyrillic and Latin scripts, and an oblique tribute to the less-predictable style of brush lettering. The first 14 styles will be available at the end of summer.
On 24 May, Russia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, and other countries that follow Eastern Ortodox tradition, celebrate Saints Cyril and Methodius day. This day also commemorates the invention of the Glagolitic and Cyrillic alphabets.
