    Hermann Zapf (1918 - 2015)

    This is a sad post, 10 days ago, Hermann Zapf passed away.

    I'm sure we font lovers knew about him and his seminal work,
    in case you haven't heard about him, here's an article from Font Shop
    and the influence of one of the greatest font designers.

    Remembering Hermann Zapf

    These past few weeks, we interviewed some of the people who knew him well — type designers who worked in close collaboration with a man they admired and loved.
