Manuale Zapficum, the new limited edition book, commemorates the ninetieth birthdays of typographers Hermann Zapf and Gudrun Zapf von Hesse through beautiful typeface specimens set in homage to the classic design of Hermann Zapf's masterpiece, his 1968 Manuale Typographicum. The 20 specimen designs in the book are based upon quotes about the couple's oeuvre, each typeset in Zapf faces and letterpress printed by several of the Zapfs' colleagues.

This book is about designs born of necessity; often spontaneously, always pragmatically. It is also about the particular sensibility of graphic designer George Tscherny and his ability to find beauty or art in the most ordinary things, and to communicate this appreciation to others. Experience his infectious enthusiasm for what could be called "anonymous", "ad hoc", or "vernacular" design; for objects that have an aesthetic appeal in spite of themselves; for creations that are both ingenious and ingenuous.

Will Burtin pioneered important contributions to international typography and visual design. He is best known as the world leader in using design to interpret science; as a proponent of 'clean,' uncluttered sans-serif typography; and for his large-scale three-dimensional models, which carried the craft and the art of display to new heights. His walk-through models included a human blood cell (1958) and brain functions (1960).


His major achievement: his clarity and ingenuity with models and graphics made complex information easy to assimilate.
