Typewriter art first found fame via the work of Flora F F Stacey in the late 1800s, but the typewriter has always inspired creativity. Tullett will trace its artistic heritage over three centuries at the St Bride event, and copies of his book Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology, published by Laurence King, will be on sale. To whet your appetite for the talk, examples of work from Tullett’s book are shown below, alongside an image of Rathbone at work and two of her artworks.

From Q to M – three centuries of typewriter art will take place at St Bride Library on September 24 at 7pm. Ticket prices range from £10-15. More info is at sbf.org.uk.
