Background

Consisting mostly of arrows and stars, Zapf Dingbats is doomed to live a life of servitude to bullet points in MS Word and Powerpoint.

In 1994 David Carson printed an interview with Bryan Ferry in Ray Gun magazine entirely in Zapf DIngbats- as a reminder that Graphic Designers are merely artists in sheeps’ clothing.
