2. Font »Glagolica Missal DPG«





The lower case letters of the font “Glagolica Missal DPG” are oriented on the “Missal from 1483”,
while the capital letters are oriented on those of the print “Transit of St. Jerome” from 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 (DPG)“
for their exemplary efforts regarding the research and preservation of the Glagolica.

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