ABOUT







Constantin I. Spektorov

Russian type designer. This site has several old Slavonic fonts made by him, ca. 2008: Bukvica UCS has caps that were used in the Moscow "Pechatny Dvor" (Printing Yard) in the 1st half of the 17th century. Grebnev UCS (2009, with Nikita Simmons) is based on the Tushka font by an unknown author. This font was modified by the printing establishment of the Preobrazhensky Bogadelenny Don at beginning of the 20th century, which was founded by Luka Arefyevich Grebnev. Still in 2009, Constantin I. Spektorov created Ostromirov UCS [based on Ostromirov XCS&AC by Nikita Simmons, which in turn was based on the letters of "Ostromirovo Evangelie" (Ostromir's Gospel) of 1056-57] and Pechatny Dvor UCS [based on Fedorovsk XCS&AC by Nikita Simmons, which in turn were based on the Russian pre-Nikon church books of the Moscow Pechatny Dvor (printing court), 1st half of the XVII century].
