Jack W. Stauffacher

Jack Stauffacher (b. 1920 or 1921, d. 2017, Tiburon) was a master printer who worked with metal and wood type and printed everything from business cards and tickets to fine art books and museum monographs. 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. Later he ran the Greenwood Press in San Francisco, and lived in Tiburon.

Robert Harlan describes Jack Stauffacher's involvement in Sumner Stone's "Cycles" font.

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).

Hunt Roman is a type designed by Hermann Zapf in the early sixties in collaboration with Jack Stauffacher.
