The Typewriter Revolution has the answers.
What do thousands of writers, makers, kids, poets, artists, steampunks, and hipsters have in common? They love typewriters—the magical, mechanical contraptions that are enjoying a surprising second life in the 21st century.
The Typewriter Revolution documents the movement and provides practical advice on how to choose a typewriter, use it, and care for it—from National Novel Writing Month to letter-writing socials, from type-ins to customized typewriters.
The book includes leaders of the 21st-century typewriter revival such as artists Keira Rathbone, Tim Youd, and L.A. Marler; street typists such as Typewriter Rodeo, Poems While You Wait, and Jacqueline Suskin; and the bloggers of the Typosphere.
Author Richard Polt is the creator of The Classic Typewriter Page, former editor of the typewriter magazine ETCetera, and co-editor of the Cold Hard Type series of typewritten anthologies.
