Over the past 50 years Hermann and Gudrun Zapf have designed some of the modern world's most unique and innovative typefaces. In fact, so ubiquitous is Hermann Zapf's Palatino that it has become a common default font on millions of laser printers around the globe. In honor of the Zapfs, an exhibition which traces the calligraphic evolution of several contemporary Zapf typefaces is being held in San Francisco in Fall, 2001.

This book is catalog to the exhibition which also features the work of 14 other calligrapher/type designers who have been influenced by the Zapf's work including: Alan Blackman, Rick Cusick, Jean Evans, Phill Grimshaw, Akira Kobayashi, Richard Lipton, Jacqueline Sakwa, Robert Slimbach, Viktor Solt, Jovica Veljovic and Julian Waters.
