Last week on Hermann Zapf’s 100th birthday, the Kelly-Winterton Press launched a Kickstarter campaign to publish Hermann Zapf and the World He Designed. This in-depth biography by Jerry Kelly, Zapf’s friend and colleague of over 35 years, traces the artist’s life from his youth in Nuremberg to his retirement in Darmstadt. The book details Zapf’s personal and work experiences and explores his modern design aesthetic. Featuring rarities and never-before-seen works and photos, it also includes definitive lists of Zapf’s type designs and major calligraphic works. We hope you will take a look at
for more details, and to reserve your copy. Visit the site today—or soon—to take advantage of limited edition and other special offers.
If you have any questions about this project, of course I would be happy to answer them.
