/ A One-of-a-Kind Reference Work

/ The comprehensive survey of typewriter art, from the beginning to the present day

/ Each book has its own unique cover

The Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry is regarded as the largest archive of its kind worldwide; it contains works from a wide variety of art movements, styles, and genres. In this volume, passionate collectors Marvin and Ruth Sackner present just under six hundred examples of outstanding representatives of a special kind of art: typewriter art. From the early days of decorative typewriter art to the sound poems of the Dadaists and concrete poems of the 1960s, all the way to contemporary works that underscore the uniqueness of the typed sheet of paper in the digital age—all of the works have a fully individual, surprising, inherent creativity. The diversity and high quality of the international collection of concrete and visual poetry is fascinating. A richly illustrated, magnificent book designed for the bibliophile, it lends the humble typewriter unsuspected glamour.

Marvin and Ruth Sackner are considered the top experts in typewriter art. In their archive, founded in 1979, they maintain ten thousands works on the themes of concrete and visual poetry.
