Happy Birthday Hermann and Gudrun! Here, my class makes their first birthday greetings after a week or so studying the italic hand. More work to do but they get better every day. Thanks to you both for the inspiration, vision, and direction towards a life and love of letters. Viele Gre, Gary Camille Rebecca Gladys, Violetta Greta Sotorios Greg — Gary Munch, 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

Die allerherzlichsten Geburtstagsglckwnsche sende ich Ihnen, lieber Herr Zapf! Das Bild zeigt mein Werkzeug aus der 1979 in Frankfurt am Main abgeschlossenen Schriftsetzerlehre, whrend der ich erstmals Optima und Palatino (Bleisatz) und Melior (Fotosatz) begegnet bin. Heute freue ich mich, dass unser lterer Sohn seit seinen Computeranfngen statt der Times New Roman lieber die Palatino einsetzt :-) Danke fr all die wunderbaren Schriften! — Silvia Werfel, Deutschland
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
Love your work! Thanks for all the great faces you have created and the inspiration they have caused! — Ian Hodgkiss, Australia

Happy Birthday! We (most likely) share common ancestors, since I have family roots in Germany, going back to another Hermann Zapf, born 1605 (cirka). From my years as a typgographer I have always favoured your fonts! /Paul L — Paul Lindstrm, Sweden
