Laptev is a single weight experimental typeface inspired by old Venetian type and realized as a humanistic grotesk based on writing with round pointed brush.
The idea is for it to become part of series of fonts which contain solely Cyrillic letters in their Bulgarian form. To sustain this they will be distributed free of charge in order to promote and encourage the use of Bulgarian Cyrillic.
The occasion for the creation of this typeface is the anniversary catalogue made for the 60th anniversary of the painter Rumen Laptev (1957–2013). The rough texture contrasting with the elegant letterforms is a refference to his work. The font is used for the headlines and large quotes but its high legibility makes it perfect for small long texts.
