Entry Description

This book was published in occasion of the 100th anniversary of birth of the greatest poet of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Mak Dizdar. First edition was published in Sarajevo in 1966. For this occasion a font was created which is based on „Bosanchica”, Bosnian medieval writing not in use anymore. Some headings and shorter poems were transliterated to Bosanchica which is a unique feature of this book.
Inspiration was certainly Mak Dizdar Inspiration was certainly Mak Dizdars poetry itself and Bosnian medieval tombstones „stechacks”.
