Ravshana Bahramovna Kurkova is a Russian actress of theater, film and dubbing, producer of Uzbek origin.

The cover of her single record “Забота” (zabota, “care/worries”) was designed by Kirill Gluschenko and is one of the rare examples of New Zelek’s Cyrillic character set in use for album art. The portraits on front and back are by Anna Sukhovei.

The back cover uses PaleoLit (“a sloppy trace of a 36 point hot metal type”) for the artist’s name, and the small text is set in Academy.

    Hey, it’s Забота not Эабота — Cyrillic can be confusing like this, but those are two different letters. One’s a consonant, another’s a vowel.

  2. Thank you, Vadim! Fixed now.
