This book, a companion volume to the Typophile Chapbook "About Alphabets" (1960, updated 1970), describes Zapf's post-1970 type designs and provides new research on many of the earlier types. In this volume, Jerry Kelly describes the origins and history of numerous Hermann Zapf typefaces including Marconi, ITC Zapf International, Linotype Zapfino, and Zapf Civilité. Kelly also includes new information on the Palatino nova and Optima nova families. This new Typophiles Chapbook is profusely illustrated with type specimens and drawings, many of which have never before been reproduced.
