Booklist: The Iron Whim

The Iron Whim: A Fragmented History of Typewriting, is (to quote the publisher's blurb) "...an intelligent, irreverent, and humorous history that traces the haphazard trajectory of the typewriter’s development and its various evolutionary dead ends." Sounds like a good read, with various anecdotes along the way involving Henry James, early typewriter salesmen, vampires and monkeys. Via the Design Observer.
