In Celebration of the 90th birthday of Hermann Zapf


This keepsake commemorating the life and contributions of Hermann Zapf was printed in 2008 in an edition of one hundred and seventy copies for members of the Society of Printers, Boston, of which Hermann Zapf was an honorary member since 1964.

Rescued from a box destined for a dumpster at the Boston Public Library as they cleared out their SP archives.

The tipped-on art is signed by the late master in pencil. Distribution was limited to only a handful of Society of Printers members, these are arguably as rare as almost any other “Zapfiania” one might find, were one to find a copy.

Two fine and complete copies are available for sale.

Unavailable elsewhere at any price. Do your due diligence, then come back and place your order knowing that you're supporting a working letterpress craftsman.

As always, excess postage is promptly refunded.
