This just hot off the press (so to speak): Alan Kitching, British graphic design legend, has agreed to teach a 4-day letterpress workshop, limited to eight people, as part of the 2015 Legacy of Letters Tour and Workshop. The entire tour and workshop, organized by Paul Shaw and Alta Price, will take place next summer from June 28 to July 7. The Kitching workshop will take place at the Tipoteca in Cornuda, Italy—one of the premier museums of printing and type in the world. It is especially renowned for its collection of wood type. The tour portion will include visits to libraries and museums in Parma, Padua, Venice and Bassano del Grappa. Full details, including prices, will be posted in August. Anyone desiring further information or wishing to make an early booking (at a discounted price) can contact Legacy of Letters at: paulshaw@nycr.rr.com.
