Invent the typewriter. Oh, wait, that’s already been done. Never mind.
Professor Richard Polt is editor of ETCetera magazine, a journal which focuses mainly on antique typewriter collecting. Next month (December 2012), the magazine is publishing its 100th issue, and Richard asked if I would illustrate a caricature of inventor, Christopher Latham Sholes, for the cover of that issue. Since I enjoy collecting a few of these machines myself I donated time to create this image. Hopefully Richard won’t mind my sharing this with readers (I doubt anyone who subscribes to ETCetera visits this blog, so it shouldn’t be a spoiler for anyone).
You can visit Professor Polt’s own typewriter blog HERE. He has a couple of hundred typewriters in his collection as is considered pretty much an expert on the subject.
