Hermann Zapf is dead…here’s a video of him working… — 2 Comments

  1. If you’re ever in Seattle, you might want to check on whether you can see the beautiful Japanese deer scrolls with their marvelous calligraphy, dated in the 1610s. I saw them on display there about 2007. Alas, they are “not currently on view.”

    “The Seattle Art Museum is fortunate to have the largest contiguous section of the Deer Scroll, measuring over thirty feet and accounting for more than one-third of the complete work. A collaborative effort among current owners of the scroll has made it available as an interactive virtual installation, in its entirety and with complete translations of the poems. Explore the entire Deer Scroll on the tablet in this gallery. “
