This year sees the first type design competition ever conducted by the ATypI (Association Typographique Internationale). Chairman Maxim Zhukov gave the competition the somewhat playful Russian name, bukva:raz!, which means "letter:one!". Bukva:raz! will cover a five-year period: typefaces designed or released between 1 January 1997, and 5 November 2001.
On behalf of the jury of bukva:raz!, the members of the Board of Directors and the President of ATypI I should like to extend my warmest congratulations to those members of this list [ATypI] whose entries have won in the competition. I am deeply grateful to all - members and non-members - who contributed to bukva:raz!
Maxim Zhukov Chair, bukva:raz!
