Massimo Vignelli is very ill and would like people to send him letters. Michael Bierut, whose other job was at Vignelli Associates, says,

Luca has visions of huge mail bags full of letters. I know that one of Massimo's biggest fantasies has been to attend his own funeral. This will be the next best thing. Pass the word."
