Rosetta celebrates Cyrillic day with discounts and new typeface

On 24 May, Russia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, and other countries that follow Eastern Ortodox tradition, celebrate Saints Cyril and Methodius day. This day also commemorates the invention of the Glagolitic and Cyrillicalphabets.

In the ninth century, Glagolitic was invented by two brothers known as the “Apostles of the Slavs” to translate Christian texts into the language of the Great Moravia region. Later on, in the 9–10th century, one of their disciples who moved to Bulgaria invented the Cyrillic alphabet as a derivative of the Glagolitic and Greek alphabets.

Rosetta type foundry is based today where Great Moravia used to be. We wish to celebrate the Cyrillic alphabet day with the two following announcements.
