• Silent Type: A Retrotech Journal

    If you listen very closely you can hear a collective oooh-aaah in the typosphere. Strikethru Publishing's first volume of Silent Type: A Retrotech Journal made its way to the mailboxes this week and I'm beside myself with typewriter love. Forty-three pages of full-color photography and divine collage in addition to fiction, poetry, and essays - in full typewritten glory.

    It's a strong read and a stunning tribute to the retrotech in all of us. Strikethru, take a bow.

    No, take two.

    Volume I ran out as quickly as it was printed, although there's talk of a second printing and a nudge here and there toward Volume II. If you can't live another minute without having a copy in your hands, let Strikethru know. Tell her Monda sent you.

    1. I got mine yesterday and it's quite possibly the most beautiful thing in the history of ever. I want in on the next one. I need to go pester Strikethru about it now, actually...

      And I must say that your thing about the embroider-er ladies was quite possibly the most awesomest thing of yours I think I've ever read. It was...moving? I want to say? And you have such fabulous stationery. Lordy, lordy.

      belexive: dunno what this means, but it sounds like the perfect kind of adjective to describe Silent Type

    2. Cursing the slowness of the upper-midwest postal system. Molasses in January, I tell you.

    3. Ah, so there's a chance I could still beat out Olivander to a copy. I was starting to get the itchy peeves.

    4. I can't believe I have my copy before you guys. We've still got Pony Express down here.

      Julia, I can't wait to see your work in the next issue!

    5. Monda, I too loved your story. Perhaps your issue arrived faster due to the karmic winds, since I have Arkansan roots.
