Russian handwriting


So I was thinking about how my e's look remarkably like my c's. In English handwriting a variant for the common script e is the more rare "greek e" (looks like epsilon). Does this exist in handwritten Russian? I'm sure it would fly with them as it does here (at the very least it is recognized through context, but a brief WTF moment crosses the reader's face).

Also, this leads to a nice question about my general interest in handwriting : Is handwriting too personal for a study to have been made on the various forms and styles? Or could you point me in the direction of some resources that deal on the particulars of written language? A bonus would be a comparison across time.

Many thanks! Большое спасибо!
