From Q to M – three centuries of typewriter art

There is a talk at the St Brides Foundation which should be absolutely superb and you should know about!

Barrie Tullett is Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design at the Lincoln School of Art and Design, and cofounder of The Caseroom Press, an independent publisher of artists' books based in Lincoln and Edinburgh. As a freelance graphic designer, his clients have included Canongate Books, Princeton University Press and Penguin Books, amongst others. He has recently published a book titled "Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology" and he will guide the audience through three centuries of typewriter art

Special guest Keira Rathbone will be live typing throughout the evening demonstrating how this most rigorous and unforgiving of machines still inspires today. Keira Rathbone’s unique art explores the often forgotten creative tool the typewriter. Her works involve using a typewriter as a drawing and mark making instrument, a discipline that has evolved over a ten year period to create works as stunningly complex as they are beautiful and absorbing. Works and performances are developed from many sources; live events, people and architecture prove that the typewriter is a valid and provocative medium that challenges our perceptions of technology and the creative process.
