Mini-constitution of Ukraine

The Mini Constitution of Ukraine is a miniature book of the Ukrainian constitution. It is the only manuscript containing the constitution of a post-Soviet state in miniature format.


The initiators of the project consisted of 'Effective Solutions', a communications group, and Alekseev, Boyarchukov and Partners, a law firm. The latter took part in the editing of the Manuscript. The calligraphy was done by Igor Stepanov, who previously worked on souvenir mini-books.

The project aimed to complete the manuscript in celebration of Ukraine's Independence day. Afterwards, it was donated to a Ukrainian Museum.


The Mini Constitution used Indian ink and particularly thin and durable Finnish paper.
