The album of calligraphy and lettering 'Letterforms'.
I would like to show calligraphy like an expressive and solid art. I am a big believer in the emotion of calligraphy and the message that sent before somebody begins to read before they get the rest of information. It’s fascinating to see how calligraphy develops nowadays. The album contains works covering different directions of calligraphy from more classical types of writing to experimental ones, made by non-traditional instruments and materials. Particular attention in the album given to Cyrillic calligraphy. Many artists study the history of Cyrillic. History is a unique material and the basis for the work. I thank all the participants of the project and suggest to go to the beautiful world of calligraphy!
