Zapfino is one of the most fluid and gestural calligraphic fonts to date. I have designed several alphabet tumbles (cascades) with Zapfino as my favorite. And t thin this all started on a napkin! Herzlichen Glckwunsch to you both! — Gerald Moscato, USA
Dear Zapfs, I heard you speak at a calligraphy conference in Washington D.C. in the 1990's at which you talked about the importance of a student being able to see the teacher write with pen in hand. Today I spend more time as a graphic designer and use Optima regularly and Zapfino Three frequently. As a calligrapher I know how to use computer type well, and appreciate your beautiful letter forms. Sincerely yours, Nancy Fields Leeds, MA USA — Nancy Fields, USA
Thank you very much for all your work, for your love to letters, for your art. Regards from Argentina Juan Pablo del Peral — Juan Pablo del Peral, Argentina
I first studied calligraphy at my technical high school, an then worked for many years in the type advertising department at Compugraphic. You both were a great inspiration to me. Thank you so much for all that you have given to the typographic world and for all that you have accomplished over the years. Your beauty, grace and charm will remain with the world through your endeavors for a very long time. Wishing you all the best on your 90th year, may all your days be filled with happiness and joy. Again, thank you so much for all the wonderful ways that you have touched my soul and that of the world. — Mark Holden, USA
