    When central and eastern European designers used dry transfer lettering like Letraset, they often had to be creative to produce the non-Latin characters and diacritical marks that weren’t always available on the sheet. This included repurposing glyphs. Inventive typefaces like Motter Ombra offered a lot of opportunity for reimagining shapes as other characters. This poster for Йо хо хо, “a sensitive film about human solidarity filled with humor and poetry” (IMDB), uses Motter Ombra’s u with a period/dot for the Й.
