Our Polite Society

Will Holder

Typographer Will Holder was commissioned by Our Polite Society to produce an ‘addendum’ to their book, The Facit Model, Globalism, Localism & Identity. From the point of view of typewriters & typewriters correcting mistakes, and how time-consuming it is to read & write “beautiful letters”, this publication justifies a Swedish company’s idea to furnish the world with office-machines. It is a bunch of short ideas, joining to produce some sense, somewhere between screen & print, speech & writing, reading & writing, hearing & listening.  “Like a giant floating eyeball’ hovering over the scene (D.F.W), pointing in so many directions, while staying close to the page [this is a] report from inside a machine – 808 typewriter, a Roland-Facit hybrid model.” Matthias Kreutzer
