They had a nice obituary as well


I fondly remember Zapf taking the stage at the 2005 TeX conference and hand drawing an f on a large piece of paper.

No question which font it was from ;-)

The NY Times announced in today's paper that Hermann Zapf, the fontifex maximus has died at 96.  I know he was important to the TeX community.
