David Wolske on Legacy of Letters

David Wolske (Legacy of Letters 2013):

Legacy of Letters packs an MFA’s worth of typography into two weeks. Not a week goes by when I don’t think about my time at Tipoteca, Paul Shaw’s invigorating and illuminating walking tours, or the rare books and type specimens at the world-class libraries… not to mention the cappuccino and prosecco!

Legacy of Letters 2023 will take place from June 29 to July 12, 2023. It will include stops in Milano, Torino, Alpignano, Casteggio, Parma, Modena, Predappio, Venice, and Cornuda. We will visit five libraries/museums, five letterpress shops, one silkscreen shop, and the Tipoteca where we will have a multi-day letterpress workshop.
