Erica Carras on Legacy of Letters

Erica Carras (Legacy of Letters 2022):

If you are a fan of spending time in libraries, looking at old books and typography, you are in for a treat! We went to some stunning collections with unique curated selections. It was spectacular! Even if you don’t enjoy typography, you can easily be amused. Also, it’s Italy. You get to enjoy great food and wine!”
