Tyree Callahan has created a gorgeous 'Chromatic Typewriter' that paints with oils when you press the keys. It won the 2012 West Prize, which is awarded by popular vote. Using visual arts to change the way we think about the written word - I would love to see my favourite poems typed up on this amazing contribution to the world!

Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan modified a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter, replacing the letters and keys with color pads and hued labels to create a functional “painting” device called the Chromatic Typewriter. Callahan submitted the beautiful typewriter as part of the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize that’s determined by popular vote.
©Cara Barer’s book project has a lot to do with chance and experimentation. A random encounter with an old phone book was the primary inspiration and after that, more than seven years ago, she began the search for more books and methods to change their appearance. Their size, type of paper and sometimes contents guide her work.
