STUPID MACHINE
Jinhee Kwon

The catalogue shows how the typewriter became redundant. It does so in reverse chronological order. Each page describes one step in the development and demise of the typewriter. It provides hand drawn illustrations of each specific model of typewriter and describes the reasons for its demise. The catalogue ends in April 2011 with the closing of the very last typewriter factory. The catalogue is typeset using a typewriter and features a specially designed typewriter generated display font.
