100 Years of Typewriter Art


Frank Singleton, “Abstract 3” (1986)


Marvin and Ruth Sackner are responsible for the largest collection of visual and concrete poetry in the world and they now have a book featuring the work of 200 typewriter artists. The Art of Typewriting will be released by Thames & Hudson later this month.

The unique compilation appeals to a nostalgia for “mechanical imperfection” and working within technical constraints. It includes the first known piece of typewriter art (a butterfly of brackets and dashes by British secretary, Flora Stacey, from 1898) and other images that can’t be replicated with the slick and seemingly limitless technology of today. See more images from The Art of Typewriting below.
