Nenad Hancic created a new high quality Croatian Glagolitic font for Windows

place: Germany
Nenad Hancic from Germany, Duesseldorff, created a new Croatian Glagolitic font for Windows. The lower case letters of the font “Glagolica Missal DPG” are oriented on the “Missal from 1483”, the first Croatian printed book (incunabulum), while the capital letters are oriented on those of “Transit of St. Jerome”, a book printed in Croatian Glagolitic characters in the town of Senj in 1508.

However, the single letters have all been slightly modified to achieve a harmonious optical impression. In addition several letters have been adjusted for easier readability.

This font also provides various (in part up to quadruple) ligatures, as well as more special characters.

The individual letters of the font are underlined with the Latin, the Cyrillic as well the Glagolitic unicode. So nearly every Slavonic text can easily be converted to the “Glagolica Missal DPG” font.

The font is dedicated to the “Association of the Friends of the Glagolica (Društvo prijatelja glagoljice, DPG)“ for their exemplary efforts regarding the research and preservation of the Glagolica.

For this reason the font has been named “Glagolica Missal DPG”.
