Emmy Yamaguchi on Legacy of Letters

Emmy Yamaguchi (Legacy of Letters 2019):

I look back on Legacy of Letters as a super fun, inspiring, (and delicious!) study abroad trip. I was able to experiment with letterpress in a legendary museum and have the opportunity to visit special libraries, archives, etc. with an amazing group of creatives. To this day, I often refer back to photos I took on that Italy trip for my graphic design work. I can’t recommend it enough!

We will visit five libraries/museums, four letterpress shops, one silkscreen shop, and the Tipoteca (where we will have a multi-day letterpress workshop).
