Of all his contributions to the graphic arts, Hermann Zapf’s (1918–2015) dedication to sharing his knowledge may be regarded as one of his most enduring achievements. And no institution benefited more from his generosity than Rochester Institute of Technology where, in 1979, he began to teach a series of summer classes in Advanced Calligraphy. The classes attracted an international group of accomplished graphic artists whose hours spent with Zapf became treasured memories.

This book is a thorough account of Hermann Zapf’s contributions to the artistry and success of Hallmark Cards, an experience that is now fully blended into the company’s rich heritage. Since the late ‘70s, designer Rick Cusick has provided, in articles and presentations, most of what has been written about the Hallmark/Zapf association. This beautifully illustrated book is a tribute to Zapf’s own philosophy that the artist’s challenge is “to ensure, despite technology and mass production, that beauty is never lost.”
