James Stroud and Janine Wong on Legacy of Letters

James Stroud and Janine Wong (Legacy of Letters 2019 and Legacy of Letters 2022):

We have participated in Legacy of Letters tours in 2019 and 2022 and found both experiences to be a most enjoyable mix of typographic history, artist book projects, and incredible food and wine excursions. Paul Shaw and Patricia Childers put together an extraordinary, finely-tuned program, and gathered together a compelling mix of participants from far and wide. We look forward to joining Legacy of Letters again in the future. Tipo, Cibo, Vino!

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