Project Description

James Cook

London, UK

James lives in the UK. He receives typewriter commissions from across the world (largely across the pond in the USA.) Without reservation, he will tackle any typewriter project that comes in his direction; be it album covers to book cover and portraits of pets to wedding anniversary presents. Unbounded by any challenge he faces, James looks to improve his typewriter skills and expertise in shading with the @ symbol.

James produces intricately-detailed drawings that are stamped with thousands of letters, numbers and punctuation marks using a mechanical typewriter. This takes a considerable amount of skill, control and precision. The size of James’ typed masterpieces can vary from the size of a postcard to a 2 meter wide cityscape constructed in section and hot-pressed together thereby allowing for creations larger than the limitations of a typewriter’s traditional paper-feed.
