Study graphic design and typography this summer in Rome—the birthplace of Western typographic tradition. This workshop is a unique way to learn about type and typography, book and lettering design, as well as architecture, art, archeology, epigraphy, and even Italian cuisine.  Work with the best typographers and designers in Italy. Tour the Trajan Column and partake in exclusive guided visits to the Roman and Imperial Forums, the harbor town of Ostia Antica - an ancient site that best reflects the grandeur of Rome - and a “behind-the-stacks” tour of Biblioteca Angelica, the oldest library in Europe that houses original Bodoni type books. Participate in hands-on workshops. Examine the inscriptions on Roman structures that have long been accepted as a typographic ideal.  Your appreciation of type and relationship to typography and design will be forever transformed.

3 graduate credits offered.
