Bulgaria Moderna is an OpenType digital font inspired by the Early Cyrillic script developed during the 10th Century in the Preslav Literary School. In addition to all modern Cyrillic characters, the project covers the entire set of modern Latin and Greek alphabets with many additional special characters and a complete set of diacritics.

Yanko Tsvetkov: „Bulgaria Moderna was one of my first typographic projects, born out of curiosity but also necessity. In the winter of 2010 I was working on a Bulgarian ethnographic design project and I needed a suitable font. I wasn’t satisfied with what I found on the market, so I started dreaming of making one on my own. Few months later, in July, during one of the hottest London summers ever, I felt I was brave enough to dive in the cold murky waters of typography. The real cause was probably heat-induced insanity but whatever pushed me, I think it worked. Now Bulgaria Moderna is in its third version and not only supports all Slavic Cyrillic-based alphabets, it also includes all Latin and Greek characters. As usual, any feedback, positive or negative, is highly appreciated.“
