Publisher: Wiescher-Design
Created by Gert Wiescher, Bodoni Classic Cyrillic is a serif font style household. This typeface has six styles and was released by Wiescher-Design.

One day shortly after Christmas 2004, the art-director of Style Moscow called me. Would I perhaps make a Cyrillic version of my Bodoni Classic Text typeface?

Well, considering that I had actually been thinking of doing it because a long period of time, this was the perfect reason to finally do it. It was not an easy venture, considering that I do not have the faintest concept of Russian but, together with those great people in Russia and a fellow helpful type designer in Kiev, I managed. I did a massive amount of kerning, thanks to the aid of the Moscow Vogue office.

Here the typefaces are now for all of you: five text cuts, plus one standard roman cut that has no Cyrillic letters but an additional set of medieval numbers. At Vogue they more than happy with the fonts, despite the fact that I did not quite follow Bodoni's originals in this case.
