ABOUT







KODEKS [Sebastian Kempgen]

KODEKS is the German slavistics server run by Professor Sebastian Kempgen from the University of Bamberg. Kempgen's fonts include Eckige Glagolica and Runde Glagolica, both for Glagolitic. He also made a mediaeval Cyrillic face, Preslav. He also created Kliment (2005; old church slavonic, covering all of these: Altkirchenslawisch, Altrussisch, Altbulgarisch, Altserbisch, Old Russian, Old Bulgarian, OCS, Old Serbian), which can be downloaded here and here. Kiril, RomanCyrillicStd (2003) and CampusRomanStd (2008) are free fonts designed for slavic language specialists. The latter two fonts are quite complete and unicode-compliant since 2007. The BukyVede font (2008) is the typeface used by the journal "Polata knigopisnaja" (Mario Capaldo and William R. Veder, eds.), published by William R. Veder&Michael Bakker, Slavisch Seminarium, Amsterdam. It is based on CyrillicaOhrid and GlagolicaBulgarian (with additions from Rumen Lazov), and adapted to Unicode 5.1, and enhanced by William R. Veder, Chicago. Final touches, additional characters and font generation by Sebastian Kempgen, Method Std is the Unicode 5.1 version of the Method font series originally created by the author, Sebastian Kempgen, in the 1980's. The blueprint for this font is the classic printing type devised by slavists and used in learned editions of Old Church Slavonic texts.
