How did the idea of creating handwritings appear?
The idea appeared long ago, but it became clearer when we started to give the master classes in different cities. A part of handwritings “for brush pen” appeared exactly in the process of preparation for the master class in Lviv on March-April, 2015. And a part of the handwritings for the “pointed pen” appeared on the 2012, when we were preparing for a master class in School of visual communications. Later the letters were remade, of course, because the level had risen.
We shared these handwritings for the pointed pen on public access in 2012, and everyone who wanted could download them. Then we realized that we acted silly, but it was too late J Conscientious colleagues and just guys wrote us to pay many for it, wanted to receive a kind of “license” for the use of handwritings that were walking successfully on the Internet. The best option is a paper handwriting that one can buy. And we were trying to implement this idea for years.
In the process of students training in Mykhaylo Boychuk Kyiv State Institute of Arts and Crafts and Design, as well as during calligraphy courses in the studio “Art and I,” we were preparing our textbooks for handwritings study, Italian cursive, the ligatured script, and Gothic. All these groundworks we have as separate materials. Maybe someday they will become separate notebooks.
In the work on handwriting participated: Ihor Dudnik, Kate Drozdovska, Vera Semyonova, Serhii Zuev.
