What is it about?

I learnt the art of Russian handwriting in three weeks in 2017. This book will show you how to handwrite the Cyrillic letters and quickly get to grips with Russian handwriting. It is organised in digestible chunks so that you can learn quickly. In the book, we also cover the Belarusian, Bulgarian, Ukrainian and pre-revolution alphabets.

My book shows you how to handwrite the Cyrillic letters and quickly get to grips with Russian handwriting. It is organised in digestible chunks so that you can learn quickly. The Belarusian, Bulgarian, Ukrainian and pre-revolution alphabets are also covered. Once I'm finished I might add Serbian and other alphabets.

When I started a new Russian school and it was clear that I would have to learn Russian handwriting in order to keep up with the pace and also improve my studying velocity. I learnt the basics in three weeks.

About a year ago I started working on the book to gather my thoughts on this process. In the summer the work really started when I bought an iPad because I could easily render handwriting without having to resort to photographs and scans.

Where can I get it?

The book is available from Leanpub and it is in the process of being written (see the ChangeLog). Version 1.4 was published in March 2020 when the book was 50% complete. I have generated two versions since, but I'm not ready to republish. There's a lot of work to do but 90% of the text is complete. Work halted abruptly when I fractured my arm but much of the work to do is revision of the images which will be completed in 2022.
