The connoisseur's guide to the typewriter, entertaining and practicalWhat do thousands of kids, makers, poets, artists, steampunks, hipsters, activists, and musicians have in common? They love typewritersâthe magical, mechanical contraptions that are enjoying a surprising second life in the 21st century, striking a blow for self-reliance, privacy, and coherence against dependency, surveillance, and disintegration. The Typewriter RevolutionÂ documents the movement and provides practical advice on how to choose a typewriter, how to care for it, and what to do with itâfrom National Novel Writing Month to letter-writing socials, from type-ins to typewritten blogs, from custom-painted typewriters to typewriter tattoos. It celebrates the unique quality of everything typewriter, fully-illustrated with vintage photographs, postcards, manuals, and more.Â
