Old font tastes like modern. Stylistic set for Chrysalide Serif Modern.
WORK IN PROGRESS.
Rossica (Vera Evstafeva)
http://typejournal.ru/en/articles/Civil-TypeThis is a clone of Chrysalide Serif Modern
This font is designed to look alike Soviet typewriter font. A similar font was used by early-90's Russian-developed word processor, 'Lexicon' by Eugene Veselov.
Where are the caps? Who cares? A bold, minimal-grid font so named because it looks sort of jellybeany. Kind of. I'm still not sure I like how dark the 'k' seems, but any fix looks worse. If there's demand, I'll add an accented set, perhaps.
«Update 2017-03-29» – I've reworked the aforementioned K. I've changed the lowercase to be a thinner version, along with much of the punctuation. I've even filled out the Latin-1 Supplement, though I loosen up considerably on the basic design elements to get things to work within the established grid.
