Hello Paul, I just chimed in with a comment … Generally I would encourage you to do it but don’t expect the big business with medievalist folks. Greetings from Leipzig, A. Stötzner

    It’s a pity? It’s a task!

    I think a little conference of typographers of the relevant countries is in order, to sort these things out. And to arrive at some sort of standard or ‘best-practice’-guidance which is made available to the international font creators community. To make creating Cyrillic sets attractive again ;)

    > … Look at the example of @Andreas Stötzner above. @Andreas Stötzner shows these stylistic differences between traditional Cyrillic uni0433 and Macedonian one.

    In the comparison I showed the right glyph is basically that of an italic i. There seems to be some ambiguity originating from the italic serifs in that glyph (left top onstroke, right bttm. offstroke). These details cause a resemblance of that glyph with the Russian Italic ghe glyph, but the latter features another weight distribution.
    Now I’d like to know: how does the Macedonian ghe glyph ought to look like in a Sans Italic with no stroke contrast.

    what I wonder about is this:

    merci, André.
  • New fonts by Andreas Stötzner

    I take the pleasure to announce four brandnew font releases at Fontspring:
    Albermont, Bergamo, Popelka and Whystor.

    Albermont is yet another member of the popular Abendschroth font family. Its peculiarity is the blend of (rather uncommon) fraktur capitals with uncial lowercase letters. It provides also ligatures and some contextual alternates.

    Bergamo is a beautiful Art-Deco-flavoured geometric sans with a rounded finish and three additional inline variant fonts.

    About Popelka has much too much been said already in this forum – however. Let’s wish her good luck!

    Whystor has been inspired by inscriptions of the 16th to 18th centuries. It combines a medium-contrast old fashioned appeal with a calm and noble attitude.
