The story of the keyboard begins with ancient hieroglyphs and reaches to the very recent, committee-designed Euro symbol. This text tells the story of each character on the computer keyboard, as well as the multitude of additional marks that cannot be found on the keys but can still be typed by anyone using a computer. Drwaings, poems and notes are used to tell where the keyboard's quirky layout came from and to illustrate the history of each letter, number, sign and symbol we encounter in everyday written communication.
