Friday Night Flicks: disillusionment of 10 point font and The Typewriter

Today’s videos are both related to typewriters. The first is a witty series of typographic puns “animated on a smith corona galaxie deluxe typewriter” by Greg Condon.

 

 

The second flick is a promo for the book The Typewriter: a Graphic History of the Beloved Machine described by author Janine Vangool as “150 years of history, a lifelong obsession, three years in the making”. (Confession: I bought the book.)

 

 

Perhaps you’ll get to play with a typewriter this weekend.
