This is, as is usual with this printer, a stunning piece; and all the more so because it is so worthy a text to contemplate.
I went to one of the shows in question and this poster brings back great memories. It's beautiful and arrived in impeccable shape.
I love my matrices! I bought 3 to make a key fob and 1 to wear on a chain. The items shipped and arrived quickly.
What could be more fitting to honor Hermann Zapf with an exquisite announcement of an event honoring the exquisiteness of his craft!
