Barkentina is a new font with full set of correct Bulgarian Cyrillic letters. It contains also Ligatures and Small Caps. It’s a display typeface, focused on elegant, stylish and art-deco looking print and web materials.
A distant predecessor of Barkentina can be considered the Artcraft font of Robert Wiebking (1912). But if Robert Wiebking’s Artcraft font remains too decorative, then in Kiril Zlatkov’s reading, the project retains a close connection with the handwritten form of the letters, but acquires originality, a modern look and magnificent readability, which presupposes the possibility of wide use of the font in various projects.
