Description
Now that typewriters have been replaced by computers in the workplace, at home, and even in writers' studies, a strange thing is happening: typewriters have been staging a comeback, as a new generation discovers the sensual pleasure of hitting real keys and hearing the satisfying thwack of type hitting paper. From the Type-Ins taking place in hip bars around the globe to Tom Hanks's popular tablet app that imitates the typing experience, the typewriter has never been so cool, and Tony Allan's abundantly illustrated history and celebration of the machine and its culture explains just why the typewriter has found so many new enthusiasts. You'll never confuse your platen knob for your paper finger again.

"How can a machine full of cold steel parts arouse such warm affection in typists' hearts? Author Tony Allan answers that question and many more in this fun and fast-moving overview, which zips from the birth of the typewriter, through the Mad Men era, and into today's neo-typing revolution."ŚMichael McGettigan
