When I was in fourth grade, my teacher told us, under no uncertain terms, that this was the year to master our cursive writing. By December of the academic year, which had started in September, we had to have completed the full transition to all cursive all the time. This was for our own good because for the rest of our lives, we would need to write in script. Well, you can file that whole whopper under 'Lies My Teacher Told Me' because not only was it not true, but people now look at me strangely if I do write in script. Thanks for nothing, Mr. Schultz.

The Art of Hermann Zapf

calligraphy_an_education-large

Hermann Zapf (born November 8, 1918) is a German typeface designer who lives in Darmstadt, Germany. He is married to calligrapher and typeface designer Gudrun Zapf von Hesse.

Zapf's work, which includes Palatino and Optima, has been widely copied, often against his will. The best known example may be Monotype's Book Antiqua, which shipped with Microsoft Office and was widely considered a "knockoff" of Palatino. In 1993, Zapf resigned from ATypI (Association Typographique Internationale) over what he viewed as its hypocritical attitude toward unauthorized copying by prominent ATypI members. via Wikipedia
