All Keyed Up

It’s been decades since I actually owned and used an old school manual typewriter. When I did work on the old Smith Corona, I never turned out anything that vaguely resembled art. But British artist James Cook has revived the underappreciated 20th century artform of typewriter art. I can’t imagine where he finds all of the ribbons that he must burn through on his 50 year-old machines.

Take a look at these amazing short videos of Cook at work en plein air.

    It makes my head spin just to look at these videos. Amazing results, though.
