Henri-Paul Bronsard on Legacy of Letters

Henri-Paul Bronsard (Legacy of Letters 2022):

To those of you interested in having a great group experience with people from different fields of knowledge, I highly encourage you to take part in the next Legacy of Letters in Italy. You will have an opportunity to visit and work in the fantastic Tipoteca museum for typography and printing. I was initially skeptical, but being part of Legacy of Letters 2022 was one of the best decisions of my life. Setting type and printing at the Tipoteca with their technicians Daniele and Lucio was fantastic. Staying at the Villa Bolzonello with its grand alpine view was a unique experience. Plus, the delicious meals at Le Corderie were unforgettable.

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