Congatulations! I first saw Optima when I studied Lettering & Calligraphy at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in 1963. Your work has always been an inspiration to me. Good health & long life. — Philip Springer, 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
