Selectric typewriter font

IBM Selectric II typewriter - Cyrillic typeball font


What is your instrument in composing? You are one of the few writers I know
who still uses an electric typewriter. What’s wrong with a personal computer?

Hunter S. Thompson: I’ve tried. There is too much temptation to go over
the copy and rewrite. I guess I’ve never grown accustomed to the silent,
non-clacking of the keys and the temporary words put up on the screen.
I like to think that when I type something on this [pointing to the typewriter],
when I’m finished with it, it’s good. I haven’t gotten past the second paragraph
on a word processor. Never go back and rewrite while you’re working.
Keep on it as if it were final.

indian sanskrit devanagari script font sketch lettering — акцидентный шрифт индийский деванагари


Devanagari display type pencil sketch.

It's easier to assemble your initial type sketch in vectors and filled shapes (masters of the past sometimes used paper and X-Acto knife also). But it's faster and more funny to invent your letters by cutting their outline with a pencil. Yes, as if it was a burin in your hand.

Dodo

19-th century book typeface revival


19-th century font — Dodo


Шрифт «Dodo», реконструкция основной книжной гарнитуры эпохи империализма (XIX век, Новое время, Модерн; обычно шла без названия, даже в каталогах, или называлась «Альдине», далее с изменениями в советское время «Обыкновенная» и «Обыкновенная новая») как в Российской империи, так и странах Европы — готовится к релизу.

Со своего создания в 2008 году этот шрифт преимущественно лежал без движения, лишь изредка дополняясь знаками: национальными, лигатурами, старостильными минускульными цифрами, капителью...



________

Принимаются заказы на «Dodo». Заказавшим шрифт до финального релиза и начала общих продаж на MyFonts — скидка 50% и бесплатные обновления базового шрифта гарнитуры.

Цена предзаказа за начертание: 20$ или 1100р (скидка по акции 50% — от 40$). Все последующие обновления — бесплатно.

________



Представленное начертание образца 2008 года — реконструкция оригинальных литер, очищенная от растискивания краски по бумаге, с сохранением: особенностей, придающих шрифту его старомодный характер, его аутентичности, исторической точности. Для реставрации бралось по 10–20 лучших отпечатков каждой буквы с разных страниц и производилась их интерполяция в наиболее точно и наилучшим образом выглядящий глиф. Латинская часть и прочие знаки, не отражённые в источнике, создавались самостоятельно. Сейчас в шрифте около 300 знаков.

Это начертание будет дополняться шрифтом с более свободно перерисованной, аппроксимированной, сглаженной и нормализованной графикой, в том числе для таких задач как:

  • Display — плакатный, заголовки, наружная реклама
  • Micro — экранный шрифт, с уменьшенным контрастом и выровненными засечками

А также:

  • Bold — более жирные начертания, ближе к оптическому восприятию использовавшегося оригинала
  • Italic — курсив, необходимый для расширения возможностей издательского книжного набора
  • Stencil — трафаретный вариант, для которого этот шрифт идеально подходит...

И другими вариациями этого шрифта — с иными пропорциями и начертаниями, из других дореволюционных и советских источников. В задумке довольно развитая полигарнитура.

Это начертание, как и его оригинал, рассчитано скорее не на экранное применение, а на текстовое и акцидентное — в первую очередь на печать текста с высоким разрешением (книги, буклеты, брошюры), имитирующее дореволюционные и некоторые довоенные памятники книжного искусства. Экранные варианты, а также любые иные будут создаваться в зависимости от ваших заказов, с приоритетом тех, что будут наиболее востребованы — пишите.

Oblique pen holder

in 5 min & 3 folds

oblique pen holder - blanzy pen nib


Rigid origami. 100 years old Blanzy pen nib.

Rotring Tikky II 0.35 mm.


To bring the nib's tip closer to your grip, making its positioning more precise, more controllable, you can add another 45° bend to this layout, forming a reverse beam.

Experiment with angles, distances, hardness of the structure, nibs, inks and papers: all of these would produce a different scripting behaviour. Prepare the nib, ensuring ink holding on it well, and its edges are not too sharp as to scratch paper. Note that this holder designed to allow you to place an ink reservoir under the nib.

Kyokushinkai

japanese / chinese calligraphy - kyokushinkai

Brush — vector — vector.

It often happens that the first rough sketch is both the final one — all that remains is to trace.

The composition is following the official emblem by Haramotoki Sensei, calligraphy master and friend of Masutatsu Oyama.

An illustration for the book, where calligraphy is compared to martial arts.

'It is said the warrior's is the twofold way of brush and sword
('Brush and sword is the same', bunbu-itchi, 文武一致),
and he should have a taste for both ways.'

    Miyamoto Musashi
    The Book of Five Rings

turtle illustration


A book illustration for own story using addition of cartouches elements and the Tenniell's Gryphon as a nice pair for the Turtle.



The remembering of the names

It happened in those ancient and thoroughly forgotten times when the world was still divided into the countries, often conflicting, and Hellas spreaded far to the north, up to the icy seas of the earth cone's apex, and was called Hyperborea. Because when people forget their purpose, they eventually forget their name. And for a long time live someone else's life, until they suddenly remember themselves.

Strangely, but they may be happy at times, in the meanwhile.
