The Typewriter Revolution
A Typist's Companion for the 21st CenturyBook - 2015
What do thousands of kids, makers, poets, artists, steampunks, hipsters, activists and musicians have in common? They love typewriters--the magical, mechanical contraptions that are enjoying a surprising second life in the 21st century, striking a blow for self-reliance, privacy and coherence against dependency, surveillance and disintegration. The Typewriter Revolution documents the movement and provides practical advice on how to choose a typewriter, how to care for it and what to do with it--from National Novel Writing Month to letter-writing socials, from type-ins to typewritten blogs, from custom-painted typewriters to typewriter tattoos. It celebrates the unique quality of everything typewriter, fully-illustrated with vintage photographs, postcards, manuals and more.
