  2. The only possible reference for block letters in Russian I can think of is the type of writing used on technical drawings and called чертёжный шрифт, easily googlable.

    But keep in mind that this is very far from being mainstream. Frankly, I don’t know any Russian who uses block letters past the age of 6, outside of technical drawings.

  3. The “feet” of Д should be below the baseline, not under it. Writing it like that is like writing a lowercase G with the “tail” resting on the line—it gives it a wonky, floating kind of look. Start by writing an Л shape, and then add the feet and the horizontal stroke on the bottom.

    Russians who prefer to write in block letters are a minority, but those that do usually also prefer an angular shape for Д and Л, like an upside-down V. That’s the original shape used in early Cyrillic calligraphy; the flat top is a later innovation.

  4. It looks nice and is easily readable)
    But as it was already mentioned, not cursive writing looks really weird. I know nobody who writes not in cursive. Cursive is mandatory I think from the primary school. Kids are taught to write in cursive at young age. Even many official forms and documents are filled using it.

    If you aren’t going to write by hand much you shouldn’t bother too much about it anyway. But some people can take inability to write and read cursive as a serious lack of education because even children can do that. Block letters are weird for Russian mentality.

  5. It looks excruciating to write. Like if you were writing in English and you tried to mimic Times New Roman.

    I would get used to writing the cursive letters. You don’t need to connect them a ton. Some of the cursive on this sub is from people just learning and are going by the book, so it can look a bit extra.
