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

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.

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
