Civil Type and Kis Cyrillic
The reform of cyrillic type took place in Russia during the reign of Tsar Peter I (1689–1725). The old poluustav type was preserved only for religious literature, while for all other publications, Peter introduced a new style that imitated the forms of contemporary Western type; in later days, the new type became known as Civil Type (grazhdanskiy shrift). — From Vladimir Yefimov’s publication.
