The Kazimir typeface was produced by Yury Ostromentsky & & Ilya Ruderman in 2015. This fixed contrast serif typeface has five designs in 5 weights: from Light to Black. Kazimir typeface is the brand-new way to show Russian book & & magazine typography from late XIX to early XX century, particularly the typeface of "The History of Russian Philology" of P. N. Polevoy, published by A. F. Marx Publishing Home in 1900.

For a modern-day viewer the typography of those years seems unusual and type of naive. When we take a book or a publication from that time it conjures up a "They do not do that anymore" sensation. Kazimir combines the typographic functions of that duration with contemporary aesthetic appeals.

Kazimir has two stylistic sets-- Regular & & Irregular in both Roman & & Italic designs. The Routine set (the default one) is a more contemporary character set, and the Irregular one has more screen characters. In Adobe programs you can select the embeded in the OpenType menu: "Stylistic set/ Set 1". You may use Regular & & Irregular characters separately or combine them in any method you want.

Kazimir is great for both brief texts and headings. It contains ligatures, case sensitive forms and additional pre-revolutionary signs, such as Ѣ, ѣ, Ѳ, ѳ, Ѵ, ѵ.
