The Intersection of Typographical Art and Cultural Transformation in the 1960 and 1970s

Alan Riddell’s Typewriter Art (1975) features 119 typographical artworks by 65 artists from 18 countries, spanning from the 1890s to the 1970s. Riddell links this medium to the concrete poetry movement, emphasizing the importance of typographical effects over verbal meaning.

Barrie Tullett’s Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology mentions the first commercial machine, the Hansen Writing Ball (1870), and the successful Remington model (1874). The typewriter revolutionized society by empowering women, democratizing communication, and providing a modern format for idea dissemination.
