Palatino and Optima are both typeface designs by Hermann Zapf, of course., while Jessen-Schrift was designed by Rudolf Koch. Both Koch and Zapf were born in Nuremberg. At the age of 16 or 17, Zapf’s interest in letterforms was aroused after having seen an exhibition commemorating Rudolf Koch at Nuremberg’s Norishalle in 1935 – Koch had died in April 1934. In 1938, Zapf moved to Frankfurt to work at Haus zum Fürsteneck, the printing workshop run by Koch’s son Paul.
