Thank you so much for all that you have given to the typographic world and for all that you have accomplished over the years. 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. Again, thank you so much for all the wonderful ways that you have touched my soul and that of the world. — Mark Holden, 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

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
Have a wonderful Birthday Hermann.. I love Zapfino and want you to know it is the most romantic type I have ever seen. It always takes my breath away. I am glad it has taken 50 years for us to appreciate a beautiful piece of ART!!!!! — Corynne Bailey, Bermuda / Graphic Student at UCA in Epsom UK
