Somehow, although he is the smallest office boy around the place, none of the other lads pick on him. Scuffling and fighting almost has ceased since Kerensky came to work. That's only one of the nicknames of Leo Kobreen, and was assigned to him because of a considerable facial resemblance to the perpetually fleeing Russian statesman, and, too, because both wore quite formal standing collars.

Description
Triod Postnaja attempts to mimic the typefaces used to publish Old Church Slavonic service books prior to the 20th century. It also provides a range of Latin letters in the same style, sufficient for the needs of central, northern and western European languages. Most Old Church Slavonic fonts that provide Latin ranges are problematic in the Latin lowercase, because they are not imitating the uncial style; I have attempted to avoid this problem, especially in lowercase letters with ascenders or descenders. I created many of the basic Cyrillic letterforms after eyeballing a very low-resolution image of the repertoire of Monotype Old Bulgarian. Triod Postnaja is something of a stylistic mishmash of various period styles. Those seeking a more period-authentic face for setting Church Slavonic should have a look at Hirmos Ponomar: http://www.ponomar.net/cu_support.html
