Calligraphic Salutations: Hermann Zapf's Letterheadings to Paul Standard

by Introduction by Hermann Zapf
Price: $30.00

All of the short texts, or quotations, reproduced in this book were originally calligraphic embellishments that appeared at the heads of letters written by Hermann Zapf to Paul Standard in the 1940s and '50s. Fifteen such decorations are carefully printed here, accompanied by translations (where necessary) and Zapf's gracious tribute essay to Standard.

A tipped-in facsimile letter enhances the charm of this intimate book, designed by Zapf and printed in an edition of 600 by the Stinehour Press.
