Description

Hermann Zapf was my boss in 1977, when he was appointed Cary Professor of Graphic Arts at the Rochester Institute of Technology. I was curator of the Cary Graphic Arts Collection at that time. Years later he gave me this handsome account of his achievements in calligraphy, typography, and type design. He was particularly proud of a commission he received from the Morgan Library & Museum: the founding principles of the United Nations written out in French, English, Spanish, and Russian.
