Typewriter, as we see, is not a mere object of the past. It has more to it and carries many stories with it. As decades went by, the importance of the machine gradually faded away. For the younger generation, the typewriter is more of a ‘Retro’ object and nothing more. Through my illustrated zine “Clack Clack”, I want to talk about the almost forgotten glorious past of the typewriter and its contrasting present.
More specifically, the zine speaks about the typewriter as an object of importance both within and outside the office setup. It talks about the fading glory of the street typists who occupied the footpaths outside the government buildings and also about how typewriters are gradually pushed off the office desks with the advent of the modern technology, limiting them to the dusty corners of the store rooms.
