Building on its research, the laboratory staff prepared the online resource Russian Autographs in the Collections of the National Library of Russia to show the evolution of Russian writing from the 18th century onwards.
The material is intended for the widest possible audience, ranging from students to font designers, criminalists, graphologists, restorers and researchers of manuscripts. Among the items on view are autographs and portraits of major Russian historical figures and authors, amazing examples of ancient writing, teaching aids of various periods. In the future, you will see digital projects on the history of paper, Old Russian book bindings and ornaments, as well as scientific and technical methods for studying manuscripts.
