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
