Summary

Favored by many famous and upcoming writers and poets as their tool of choice, and benefitting from the nostalgia of steampunk and Mad Men, typewriters (like vinyl) have experienced a resurgence—especially among hipsters. This fascinating book celebrates that renaissance through images of the most beautiful, curious, elaborate, and heralded typewriters in history, along with the stories of people who have created and used these beloved machines. Written by two typewriter collectors and experts, it features 125 color photographs tracing the typewriter’s evolution from the nineteenth through the twentieth centuries—ending with the advanced IBM Selectric—along with print advertisements, vintage photographs, patents, and other memorabilia.
