The Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy is commissioning an update for the project of the Constitution of the Russian Federation as amended in 2014. The text is written by Yuri Koverdyaev, graphic artist and a member of the Union of Artists of Russia.
Just like mountain climbing, calligraphy has its own peaks and stages. With all my calligraphy practice of many years, one of the significant peaks for me was writing the Constitution of the Russian Federation. Creating literary texts, especially when they resonate with your heart and come in harmony with the state of mind, resembles a pleasant promenade in the hills on a sunny day.
We remember the feats of our soldiers during the Great Patriotic War. We mourn those who never returned from the fields of battle. For five years Russian people have been participating in the campaign “Ribbon of St. George” as a tribute to the memory of the fallen and as a mark of respect to those who returned from the war. We remember the great feat of our country!
Late in the evening, on the eve of the Day of the Russian Constitution, our correspondent posed questions to the Chairman of the Presidium of the National Union of Calligraphers Petr Chobitko about the handwritten Constitution of the Russian Federation.
The Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy was officially opened on December 9th. The first words about the show that come to one’s mind are: elegance, grace, style…
The first International Exhibition of Calligraphy was held in St. Petersburg.
To be able to answer the Petersburgers’ teasers the organizers of the Moscow exhibition invited Larisa Drygval, professional graphologist, DSc (psychology), the only Moscow specialists of the Inessa Goldberg School of Graphic Analysis to participate in the Mystery of World Calligraphy Project.
The difficult and toilsome process of writing the Constitution of the Russian Federation manuscript is close to its end. The basic part of a hand-written masterpiece is transferred from St.-Petersburg to Moscow already. The rest is expected after the November holidays.
Publishing house “BUKOS” began its preparation for the edition of an exact copy of the handwritten Constitution of the Russian Federation in miniature.
The books are here, the miniature editions of which are absolutely different from the high symbolic value of the originals. And, undoubtedly, the Constitution of the Russian Federation is one of those books, the sense and value of which is not decreasing, it doesn’t matter how many millimeters the calligraphic letters measure.
Some say that when one dreams of something this something is half-real so this doesn’t make one unhappy, but when the dream has gone it leaves one sad since the expectation is harder to suffer. On 1st August the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy was opened. Newspapers wrote “an event that all the amateurs of beautiful hand-writing had long dreamt of finally happened”. Over a month ago it opened for visitors inviting them to enter and to look at the works of calligraphers.
The International Exhibition of Calligraphy has come to its end. Every movie, exhibition, spectacle, to speak generally every event has its memorable moment. That image that automatically recurs to you when you hear a familiar name; that is what was mentioned in the talk: “Do you remember that exhibition?” “Sure! That was when…”.
