Saturday afternoon, I went to the MoMA in NYC to enjoy the last weekend of the Bruce Conner: It’s All True exhibition. After the museum closed, I felt I still wanted more time looking at art so I went to the museum’s bookstore. As always, whenever I visit any type of bookstore or library, the designer in me feels like he’s entering a museum of book and magazine covers. I knew my time there wasn’t going to be short. It was there that I discovered a book called The Art of Typewriting.

Published by Thames & Hudson, the 352-page book consists of numerous explorations of typewriting art including poetry, optical illusion, political statements and purely visual imagery. Back home, I was so intrigued by what I saw in this book that I kept looking for more examples of this art. Below I’d like to share some interesting pieces I like including some from the book and others from my own research.
