ABOUT







Mihail Grigorevich Rovenskiy

Russian type and book designer (1902-1996), who worked for the publishing houses Izogiz, Goslitizdat and Izdatelstvo Inostrannoy Literaturi as art and technical editor. Staff type designer at VNII Polygraphmash from 1952-1972. Typeface creations: Bazhanov Display (Diploma of the Second Degree at All-Union Graphic-Poster-Book Exhibition in 1957), New Journal (1963; 1992-1995, Intermicro), Svetlana (1976-1981). At Polygraphmash, he created Bazhanov (1961, based on the lettering of Moscow book designer Dmitry Bazhanov (1902-1945). Paratype says (sic): Old-fashioned flavor of this design recreates the Soviet hand-lettering style of the 1940s). In 1976-1981, he designed the body text to accompany the latter face: Svetlana.
