typographic laws of the cyriilian alphabet which, with
its broad-faced, complicated lettering, imposes its
own rhythm upon the whole composition. And here
we have finally arrived at the points which are
especially decisive for Hordinskij's qualities as
commercial artist; these are unity of design and text
and their suggestive effect. Thus considered, there

Hordinsky may undoubtedly be reckoned among the
born commercial artists, who see the plan and
purpose of their task unmistakeably clear before them
He has a sure and facile command of his artistic tools.
