John Rissieeuw on Legacy of Letters
I found Legacy of Letters to be a bracing, whirlwind tour of historic sites important to letter history. Both the novice and the well-initiated will find delights and revelations in the many presentations of letterform, type, and printing. The burning need, generated by days of museum and library viewing, for hands-on printing and ink-on-fingers is satisfied with a four-day workshop at the Tipoteca. A true joy to those with type on the brain.
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.
