If you’re my age or older and took typing in high school, you learned on a typewriter. Yes, it might be a foreign object to the younger generation, however, it served the purpose. Do you remember all that carbon paper? Oh, just dreadful!
I still can recall the clickity click sound as the whole class earnestly completed assignments. It was no easy task and required strength to push the keys in order for them to reach the rubber roller (properly known as the platen) and hit it hard enough for the inked letter to appear on the paper. I loved typing and still do which really goes back to my nerd roots.
It wasn’t that long ago that I was blown away with Keira Rathbone’s typewriter art. I still marvel at her video clip. Anyway, I found some more really cool recycled typewriter art by Jeremy Mayer and it is totally different than Keira’s art. I just had to share it with you today.
The typewriter man reminds me of the droids on Star Wars. I love droids!
If you want to support Jeremy Mayer’s art too, give him a little boost by “liking” his Facebook Fan page here.
As always, isn’t it simply amazing that art can be found in the strangest things?
