Typewriter Art

Dear Liza,

While Auntie Bridgett, Grandpa Nelson and I were visitng Tony Valoppi at Type Space, I enjoyed the colorful typewriter-themed art that was on the walls. Some were even comics related.

To make their heros more relatable, the 1940s comics artists showed the superheroes using typewriters. This got us talking about comics, and, of course, Books with Pictures. Tony says his son is a great fan of Auntie Katie’s bookstore.

This magazine cover from the August 1930 issue of Fortune Magazine has a very modern look.

There are also tee shirts for sale with the great graphic logo of the shop,

and books on the history and culture of typewriters.

What an adventure!
