Hermann Zapf and Antiqua

The image shown is taken from the 1989 Annual and Calendar produced by the International Cooperation of Typedesigners and Type manufacturers Printers and Typographers. A magnificent production I don’t know if it is still produced but it was printed and bound in what was then still West Germany, the publisher being Typostudio SchumacherGebler. It was a trilingual production (English, German and French).

The calendar format allowed each month to be devoted to a designer and typeface, this example from October. (Click on image to enlarge.)
