The skills of Mr. Zapf

Best known for his typeface design including Palatino, Optima and Zapfino, Hermann Zapf was also a self taught calligrapher. This beautiful film about the purpose and techniques of calligraphy was produced in 1967 during a visit to Hallmark Cards. Refreshing reminder of the craft and skill involved in lettering and one man’s passion for type.
