Publisher's description: The beloved typewriter its utilitarian beauty, the pleasing percussive action of striking its keys, the singularity of the impressed page is enjoying a genuine renaissance across the creative industries. In this authoritative publication, the founders of the Sackner Archive of Visual and Concrete Poetry, the largest such collection in the world, apply their experience, mining the collection they have created over four decades to present over 600 examples produced by more than 60 of the world's finest typewriter artists. From the early ornamental works produced by secretaries in the late nineteenth century to more recent works that consider the unique position of the typewritten document in the digital age, there is an astonishing and delightful range of creativity in every artwork. The Art of Typewriting features three main sections: an introduction to the history of the typewriter and its art; an expansive plate section showing key works rendered in exquisite detail; and a reference section featuring biographies of the genre's most influential artists and writers. The book's layout has been created by London's leading graphic design studio, Graphic Thought Facility.
