Liebe Frau Zapf von Hesse, lieber Herr Zapf, nochmals auf diesem Wege meine besten Wnsche zu "180 Jahren" Kreativitt.

Ich wnsche Ihnen noch viele Jahre bei bester Gesundheit und freue mich auf hoffentlich noch zahlreiche gemeinsame Projekte. Ihr Frank Wildenberg — Frank Wildenberg, Deutschland
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
Dear Brilliant Designers, I fell in love with type when I was a young girl and my father owned an ad agency. The personality if a typeface is like knowing a special person. I used to name fonts on billboards as I drove by them. Thank you so much for bringing so much life to type. Your designs are simple and wondrous. May you live another 90 years. Many blessings, Melissa Rigler — Melissa Rigler, United States
I wish you both a wonderful Birthday. I meet you at RIT and we did a workshop together. I worked at the Stinehour Press for years and now teach Typography at Lyndon State College along with design. I always remember our time together and wish you both well. Harry Mueller harry.mueller@lyndonstate.edu — Harry Mueller, USA
Happy Birthday! My present to you is doing a research paper on "Hermann Zapf" — M. Lee, America
