«Aptekarsky Ogorod» — is a historical and cultural monument in Moscow, the oldest botanical garden of Russia which was based by Peter I in 1706. In the project was used a script type KAZIMIR — the contrast static antique font which was designed in 2015 by Yury Ostromentsky and Ilya Ruderman. It has a direct allusion to the Petrovsky civil font used in Russia by Peter I in 1708. Using of this script in the project emphasizes the value of historical heritage of the Botanical garden.
