Description

The connoisseur's guide to the typewriter, entertaining and practical.

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.
