    This is Hermann Zapf’s caps-only typeface Saphir, spaced tightly. In the first line, its decorative patterning has been filled in. In ‘G’, the right side of the bar was removed and the top stretched. ‘D’ was also messed with, for a tighter fit. Don’t fiddle with Zapf’s letterforms like that. Chances are very low they will get any better.

    Saphir was first issued in 1953. Hermann Zapf passed away last night. His legacy will live on.
