Hermann Zapf and His Design Philosophy


Here it is: Hermann Zapf’s design philosophy, all laid out in one fat book—and with an introduction by one of our very favorite designers. Loaded with essays, observations, and tons of remarkable type, lettering, calligraphy, and design, this one is essential for anyone who wants to understand what this guy was all about. Oh, and it’s signed-and-inscribed by HZ to JW.
