ABOUT







Jack W. Stauffacher

Hunt Roman is a type designed by Hermann Zapf in the early sixties in collaboration with Jack Stauffacher. Jack wrote a lot about typography, e.g., Janson, a Definitive Collection (The Greenwood Press, 1954), Hunt Roman: the birth of a type, (1965), and Inscriptions at the Old Public Library of San Francisco (2003, edited by Jack). Jack was at Carnegie Tech (now Carnegie Mellon) during the early 1960's. He started the Laboratory Press and taught the creative possibilities of letterpress. He left there about 1964. He now runs the Greenwood Press in San Francisco.
