Allyson Strafella in Typewriter Art: A Modern Anthology
"This beautiful book brings together some of the best examples by typewriter artists around the world. As well as key historical work from the Bauhaus, H. N. Werkman, and the concrete poets, there is art by contemporary practitioners, both typewriter artists who use the keyboard as a "palette" to create artworks, and artists/typographers using the form as a compositional device. The book will appeal to graphic designers, typographers, artists, and illustrators, and anyone fascinated by predigital technology." By Barrie Tullett, published by Laurence King Publishing, 2014.

Sebastian Rug reviewed by Julia Clift for Title Magazine
"The resulting sway of each piece is evocative; it records a relationship between control and its lack, with which all human beings are intimately familiar. Each mark suggests our day-by-day, or minute-by-minute agency; the finished product reflects the unpredictable sum of a life. According to the size of Rug’s mark, the unit of experience for which he dare assume authority is awfully short."
