Bulgarian fonts/typefaces

Postby Psi-Lord » 2012-09-10, 11:44

Not long ago, I found out something very interesting – that there exists a particular design for Bulgarian typefaces/fonts that, as far as I could find out, isn’t commonly seen in any other country that uses the Cyrillic alphabet. The differences can easily be seen in this picture (standard Cyrillic above, Bulgarian-flavoured design below):

Only then did I realise how common it is to see the variants in my Bulgarian materials and in pictures of outdoor ads, shops, magazines etc. Because of that, I started searching for Windows fonts designed along those lines, but I found out they’re really hard to spot, particularly if you’re looking for free stuff (but not only then). Besides the professional font in that image (Myriad Pro), I also found another professional font (Rotis Semi Serif) – but couldn’t really get any of them –, and then avataar was kind enough to get me an .OTF copy of Teams (originally a Type 1 font) from his Linux distribution.

I was wondering, then – do any of you happen to know any fonts designed that way that you could share or that one could easily download a copy of from somewhere?

I didn't know that that font was specifically made for Bulgarian. I dislike it, since in it the cyrillic к looks entirely like the latin k, and so do ж and sometimes ю. The vertical lines of these three letters к ж and ю have never reached the height of capital letters.
Other than that, I barely see any difference, just minor stylistic variations.
