Typewriters, once a vital tool in the office and at home worldwide, are now destined either to sit on the collector's shelf or doomed to be recycled, or worse. Jeremy disassembles them completely and then reassembles them into the forms by which, he says, the inventors of the typewriter were inspired- our own bodies.<br /> <a href="http://jeremymayer.com/">http://jeremymayer.com/</a>
