Janine, at UPPERCASE is about to embark on a publishing dream.
For quite some time she has had on the back burner a very special publishing project pertaining to one of her collecting "loves"--the typewriter.
From time to time when I was at UPPERCASE for an event or to drop something off, Janine would mention this publishing idea to do a book on the history of the typewriter. It sounded like a rather large under taking to me, but I thought if anyone could do it and do it in a design savvy way, it was Janine.
Earlier this week The Typewriter: a Graphic History of the Beloved Machine kicked off a crowd funding campaign. You can read all about it on the UPPERCASE blog + watch the video!
Janine has given so much support + exposure to independent designers, thinkers, trades people, craft persons, small business owners and artists through the many publications she creates. Giving back or showing support is super easy, whether it be $5.00 or $45.00, there are contribution levels to suit every budget.
to keep up to date on Janine's typewriter history crowdfunding campaign bookmark the project site + think about making a contribution. i know Janine would be grateful for your support.
