Designed in 1979 by Hermann Zapf, ITC Zapf Chancery is a contemporary script based on Italian chancery handwriting. The chancery hand was developed during the Italian Renaissance and originally used for formal and informal work by the scribes in the papal offices. ITC Zapf Chancery is highly legible, making it useful for short texts as well as for adding flair to invitations, awards, diplomas, and greeting cards.
