starting Kickstarter

Since it is International Typewriter Day, it seems fitting to share with you a project that I have in the works...

A richly illustrated book full of never-before published typewriter memorabilia, intriguing historical documents and entertaining anecdotes, The Typewriter: a Graphic History of the Beloved Machine is a beautiful ode to an all but obsolete creative companion.

It is an ambitious 224-page hardcover book which I hope to fund through Kickstarter next month. The concept for the book is one I have been refining for many years and I can't wait to share more about it with you. In the next few weeks, I'll be shooting and editing a video in preparation for the project launch on Kickstarter.

If you're not already signed up for the UPPERCASE e-newsletter, please do that here and you'll be informed when the Kickstarter project goes live. If you'd like to help spread the word about The Typewriter: a Graphic History of the Beloved Machine, please drop me a line! The success of a Kickstarter campaign relies not only on the strength of the project concept, but also the support it gets through social media so your help is very much appreciated.

I'm very keen on funding this kickstarter ;) I've always been a great fan of all sorts of typewriters and can't wait for it to be funded (:

We, too, are typewriter fans. My husband, Norman Ball, is writing a book about the very earliest typewriters -- those created before 1900. He is working with a collector you have mentioned on a previous blog, Martin Howard. Recently, when we were on holiday in Paris, Norman found some interesting typewriter memorabilia and tracked down a couple of addresses associated with historic French typewriters. He wrote about his experiences here:

We thought you might enjoy the story and some of the photographs.

Happy Canada Day and keep typing!
