Type Tuesday - Hermann Zapf

Type Tuesday honors the passing of Hermann Zapf, who by his own admission received a "B" in penmanship in grade school, but grew to become one of the most prolific and honored designers in the world of type design. Zapf died June 4th, 2015 in Darmstadt, Germany at the age of 96. Here is but a small sampling of Zapf's fonts from his 1960 Typophile Chap Book About Alphabets: Some Marginal Notes on Type Design.
