Der Herausgeber versprach, sein Bestes zu tun für den schriftstellerischen Kollegen. Etwas verwunderlich wollt es ihm nun wohl bedünken, als sein Freund ihm gestand, daß das Manuskript von einem Kater, Murr geheißen, herrühre, und dessen Lebensansichten enthalte; das Wort war jedoch gegeben, und da der Eingang der Historie ihm ziemlich gut stilisiert schien, so lief er sofort, mit dem Manuskript in der Tasche.Der Herausgeber versprach, sein Bestes zu tun für den schriftstellerischen Kollegen.

Покойный А. В. Сутягин: "Бывают ли у вас, Любочка, такие состояния, при которых буквально все, что происходит с вами и вокруг вас – вон старушка – видите? – что-то ищет в сумке, а вон кошка забежала за угол, – что все это исполнено какого-то великого и тайного смысла, который, кажется, сделай лишь малое усилие – и поймешь сразу и навсегда? Что, простите?"Покойный А. В.

About

Roslindale gets its unique attitude from the reverberation of sharp serifs against bulbous, round shapes. In her interpretation of DJR’s design for the Cyrillic script, Serbia-based type designer Jovana Jocić has taken Roslindale’s interplay of sharps and rounds to the next level.

Roslindale builds on the model of De Vinne, a quirky oldstyle from 1892 named after the famed 19th-century printer. But while De Vinne was at times a bit blotchy and uneven, Roslindale’s tight spacing and slick curves lean more towards the 1970s interpretations of the style.

Jocić stays true to this visual style and adapts it expertly to the Cyrillic script. From the spikes on the bottom of д to the the curled ball terminals of й, she uses every opportunity to coax the tension out of these disparate shapes. This tension is present in upright and Italic styles, with Bulgarian and Serbian alternates.

Roslindale Condensed is the narrowest and most distinctive typeface of the entire collection. It would look great on the cover of a magazine or in the credits. Roslindale Condensed includes 8 weights (from Extra Light to Ultra) with an italiс for each.
