font family


Designed by Hermann Zapf in 1998
Today's digital font technology allowed the world-renowned typeface designer/calligrapher Hermann Zapf to finally realize a vision he first had more than fifty years ago: creating a typeface that could capture the freedom and liveliness of beautiful handwriting. The basic Zapfino™ font family, released in 1998, consists of four alphabets with many additional stylistic alternates that can be freely mixed together to emulate the variations in handwritten text.

In 2003, Herman Zapf completely reworked the Zapfino design, creating Zapfino™ Extra, a large expansion of the Zapfino family designed in close collaboration with Akira Kobayashi. This incomparable typeface family, also available in OpenType format, may be found here. Zapfino™ Extra features a cornucopia of new characters, including exuberant hyper-flourishes, elegant small caps, dozens of ornaments, more alternates and ligatures, index characters, and a very useful bold version-named Zapfino™ Forte.

Use Zapfino to produce unusual and graceful advertisements, packaging, and invitations. Zapfino is so joyously abundant that it's tempting to over-indulge, so be sure to check out the tips for working well with the possibilities!"
