This week my copy of the Uppercase typewriter book arrived. Like the title says it is about the graphic history, more than about the machines themselves. Lots of pictures of typewriter ephemera and period illustrations of and about the typewriter in their historical context. Nice!
(Package got the comment: "There can't be a typewriter in that box!")
Also just now the Typewriter Revolution book is announced as ready and available. As the subtitle says, this one is more about the actual use of typewriters in this modern day and age. Look forward to seeing that one make it across the pond also :-)
They're in season!
