An exhibition for the 90th birthday of Hermann Zapf
A life with fonts: Hermann Zapf was undoubtedly one of the most important typographers of the 20th century. The exhibition traced Zapf's extraordinary life through a selection of his work and offers insights into the changes in writing and printing technology. From handwriting and calligraphy to Gutenbergs Revolutionary invention of printing with movable type in the 15th century, up to the predominant printing technologies of the 20th century: machine typesetting with lead letters, photo typesetting from the 1960s to 1980s and the digital typesetting that is still in use today.
