Favoured by many famous and upcoming writers and poets as their tool of choice, and benefiting from the nostalgia of steampunk and Mad Men, typewriters have experienced a resurgence. Typewriter 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, the book features 125 colour photographs tracing the typewriter's evolution from the 19th to the 20th centuries - ending with the advanced IBM Selectric - along with print advertisements, vintage photographs, patents and other memorabilia.
