B3803. Hermann Zapf Book Combo
This is a special price for the following two books. Save $10 by purchasing together.

B3435. About More Alphabets: The Types of Hermann Zapf by Jerry Kelly with a foreword by Robert Bringhurst. 2011. 112pp. 4.5"x7". Hardcover
In 1960, the Typophiles published a now-treasured chapbook on Hermann Zapf's metal faces. More than 50 years later, this new volume brings you up-to-date, presenting a selection of his major alphabet design projects. Even as letterforms have changed from metal to phototype to digital, Zapf has continued to produce exceptional typefaces - most drawing from pen-made forms. The book is filled with type drawings and trials and other illustrations, some rarely seen. Purchase your copy of this finely-printed letter art treasure designed by Jerry Kelly. (As a used book, the first Zapf chapbook can command $100 or more.). Typophile Chap Book New Series no. 3.

A thorough account of Hermann Zapf's contributions to the calligraphic and typographic artistry of Hallmark Cards. The Hallmark/Zapf association is a now fully blended into the company's rich heritage in the lettering arts.

Printed in color on Mohawk superfine. Rick Cusick presently oversees the design and development of proprietary fonts for Hallmark Cards. He is also a respected designer, calligrapher, and teacher working with the University of Kansas in developing lectures and curriculum for lettering, typography, and type design.
