| Mr. Nenad Hančić-Matejić from Düsseldorf in Germany created a very nice Croatian Glagolitic quickscript font (or cursive font), called "Croatica". It is available on the address www.glagolica.com.nu, described in Croatian, German and English languages. It is a result of four years of hard work, and the font was launched in 2009. It contains also numerous ligatures. The font will be useful for amateurs as well as for professionals working in the history of Croatian language, in particular for those dealing with centuries old texts written in Croatian Glagolitic quickscript. |
In October 2009 Mr. Hančić-Matejić payed a visit to Zagreb and the Library of The Society of Lovers of the Glagolitic Script, kept in Knjižnica B. Ogrizovića near the Square of Petar Preradović, known also as the Flower Square (Cvjetni trg in Croatian), on the photo.
As an illustration, see the following text which was written by computer, using his excellent Glagolitic quickscript font, and not by hand.
At the bottom right is his signature: Nenad Hančić-Matejić.
The font of Croatian Glagolitic quickscript called "Croatica" and created by Nenad Hančić-Matejić is available on the following site, that we warmly recommend you to visit:
As I live in Germany I couldn't find out much at all about Glagolica until I got my first Internet access in 2000. At that point I was able to find some simple websites on Glagolica. My self-imposed objective to learn this script seemed very difficult with these sites. It took quite some time for me after this to take on the learning of the angular Glagolica.
Over time I collected more and more information on Glagolica on the Internet, and one day at the beginning of the year 2005 I came across the website of Prof. Darko Žubrinić "Small Introduction to Cursive Glagolica". It seemed to me I had been waiting for just such a website, and so I learned writing with cursive Glagolica as per the handwriting examples on this site.
So I made up my mind to create a cursive Glagolica font myself. I consider it as my contribution that Glagolica will neither be forgotten nor disappear in our electronic age.
