Handwritten Constitution

The handwritten copy of the Constitution of the Russian Federation is a unique project of the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy that saw light in autumn 2008. This is the fruit of the hard labours of a team of professional calligraphers and publishers lead by Pyotr Chobitko, Chairman of the Presidium of the National Union of Calligraphers. The handwritten copy of the Constitution of the Russian Federation is part of the International Exhibition of Calligraphy, an educational and socially beneficial project launched by Sokolniki Museum-Educational Complex. After the general election, the President of Russia makes an oath on a Special Copy of the Constitution of the Russian Federation. This is an important moment in the inauguration ceremony. Therefore, the handwritten copy of the Constitution of the Russian Federation can be regarded not only as the Basic Law of Russia, defining the country’s legal, political, and ideological fields, but also as a historical and cultural symbol of Russia. At present, the exquisite folio abides in the halls of the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy.
