B3435. About More Alphabets (Zapf) / Kelly
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 changed from metal to phototype to digital, Zapf 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.

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.

B4290. Hermann Zapf & the World He Designed /Kelly
B4290. Hermann Zapf & the World He Designed by Jerry Kelly. 2019. 350pp. 6-1/8"x9-3/8". Hardcover

Free media mail shipping (USA only).

In this comprehensive biography of Hermann Zapf, Jerry Kelly, Zapf’s friend and colleague of almost 40 years, traces the artist’s life from his youth in Nuremberg to his retirement in Darmstadt. Scrupulously researched at the Hermann Zapf archive in the Herzog August Bibliothek in Wolfenbüttel and at the Cary Collection at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and enriched by decades of conversations with Zapf and his associates, the book details Zapf’s experiences with type companies, printers, publishers, and colleagues. It explores his modern design aesthetic and engagement with the staggering technological advances of typography during the twentieth century. Featuring rarities and never-before-seen works and photos, it also includes definitive lists of Zapf’s type designs and major calligraphic works. However, the volume is more than an in-depth appreciation of Zapf’s work; it is about his work in relation to his life.
