Silently Celebrate Typewriters with This Illustrated Army of Classics

By Eric Limer on at

There's no denying that typewriters were (and are!) fantastically complex and beautiful pieces of machinery. They're also noisy, expensive, and a pain to use. With Pop Chart's Visual Compendium of Typewriters though, you can have the best of both worlds: antique art and a backspace key.

The chart features over 60 hand-illustrations of typewriters dating all the way back to the 1870s, to more modern marvels like the IBM Selectric I. You can pick up an 18" x 24" (45 cm x 60 cm) print of these old-school word-smithing bad boys at Pop Chat Labs for an introductory sale price of $23 (£14). Just think about all the paper you're saving with email, and it's easy to justify the cost. For a better, zoom-able, look at the individual typewriters on the poster, follow the link to the Pop Chart website. [Pop Chart Labs]
