Nabucco is a revival typeface taken from a poster for Giuseppe Verdi's opera Nabucco Boris Bućan made for Croatian National Theatre in Split. Boris Bućan is renowned artist, painter and graphic designer from Croatia, famous for his peculiar approach in designing posters for cultural events. This silk-screen poster was made in 1983. and it was most likely inspired by Babylonian art and cuneiform script.

The typeface was designed in 2010. at School of design in Zagreb, and mentored by Nikola Đurek. Read Less
