No. 1-2 JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2018.

 

Matica magazine’s winter double issue for January and February was released in mid February, as usual featuring many fascinating articles from the homeland and around the world. The cover features Korčula island native Jakov Perčić, who captured southern Chile and Argentina on film at the turn of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, from the featured article on this little known photographer and his unique oeuvre.

Also in the latest issue read all about the anniversary of Operation Maslenica, President Grabar-Kitarović’s visit to the Croatian communities of Bosnia-Herzegovina, the first session of the 2nd convening of Government’s advisory body on Croatians abroad, the 2018 Winter School of Croatian Folklore and much, much more.
