Personal computers may have replaced the typewriter in most homes and offices, but the venerable writing machine is currently staging a comeback. From portable models that hipsters are snapping up in Urban Outfitters to Tom Hanks's bestselling app that recreates the manual experience on a tablet, the typewriter has never been so hot. This celebration of the typewriter covers what a platen knob is, why QUERTY won out over other arrangements of keys, which authors loved (or loathed) their typewriters, and much more.

  • A gift book with yellowed paper and typewriter fonts for a cool vintage look
  • Timeline of the typewriter features key models
  • Foreword by Paul Schweitzer of Gramercy Typewriter Co.

About the Author:

After studying History at Corpus Christi College, Oxford and Journalism at Indiana University, Tony Allan worked for the British Broadcasting Company and as a magazine editor before turning to book publishing. In the course of a 13-year stint with Time-Life Books in London and Alexandria, Va., he served as editor and writer on multi-volume book series including the 24-volume Time-Life History of the World. He has since written children's books for Usborne Publishing and schoolbooks for Heinemann Educational, as well as titles for adults on history and myth including The Mythic Bestiary (2008), Prophecies (2009), and Vikings: The Battle at the End of Time (2010). At last count his books had been translated into 14 languages, including Korean and Japanese.
