Lucia McCreery on Legacy of Letters

Lucia McCreery (Legacy of Letters 2010 and Legacy of Letters 2019):

These tours are not to be missed! The two I’ve been on were tremendously enriching and enjoyable. I would never have known about—let alone got to—most of those lettering and type shrines on my own, nor had such outstanding food and wine in primo Italian settings. The others on the tour were great people, and we could not have had a better leader than Paul Shaw.

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.
