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.

Though little known today, the Aries Press produced exceptional examples of fine printing. Richard Kegler documents its colorful history accompanied by fine illustrations and samples from the Press.
