    When I first saw this rainbow colored typewriter I thought, wow that’s a really cool decorated typewriter. It is actually a painting device! The typewriter is the work of Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan, who replaced the letters and keys with color pads and hued labels so that instead of typing words, you can essentially type a painting. What a creative, genius idea! Rainbow Typewriter http://blog.freepeople.com/2012/06/rainbow-typewriter/#ixzz1y0p8qhK9

    Washington-based artist Tyree Callahan has created a rather fascinating objet d’art the likes of which we’ve never seen — a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter that is modified to paint with oils. Callahan replaced the ink pads with colored paint pads and the letter keys with color markers to build the painting machine, dubbed the Chromatic Typewriter. He submitted the creation to the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize whose winner is 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.
