With an Introduction by David Pankow. Foreword by Steven Galbraith. This new book – Manuale Calligraphicum – was conceived as a way to honor Hermann Zapf’s legacy at RIT by offering a select group of accomplished former students an opportunity to share, through their art, what those classes meant to them. The specifications for submissions were simple: design an original calligraphic alphabet or quotation that could be presented and formatted in the manner of Professor Zapf’s famous model book Feder und Stichel (1950) and printed letterpress to the very highest standards. A selection of 19 works from 15 calligraphers as their tribute to a master teacher and dear friend: Larry Brady, Marsha Brady, Annie Cicale, Rick Cusick, Claude Dieterich A., Reggie Ezell, Peter Fraterdeus, Kris Holmes, Jerry Kelly, Peter Noth, Marcy Robinson, Ina Saltz, Steven Skaggs, John Stevens, Julian Waters. Designed by Jerry Kelly and letterpress printed on Hahnemühle paper by Bradley Hutchinson. New.
