Erik Spiekermann on Legacy of Letters
Erik Spiekermann (Legacy of Letters 2017 letterpress workshop leader):
Roman, Italic, Antiqua; Pizza, Pasta, Vino.
Seems like some of the best things in a designer’s life come from Italy. Add to those the romantic towns, the world’s best museum of type & typography (Tipoteca Italiana), and a knowledgeable, Italian-speaking guide (Paul Shaw), and you have the perfect trip. Legacy of Letters is educational, entertaining, enlightening, and, above all, fun. I know, I’ve been there.
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.
