Writers are always looking to imbue their work with a little artistry, and visual artists often struggle to find the right words, but now an enterprising tinkerer has found a way to combine the two disciplines to create aesthetic magic.
Tyree Callahan created the Chromatic Typewriter as an entry to the 2012 West Collects "West Prize Competition," but given the enthusiasm surrounding the device it may turn out to be more than a one-off project. The Chromatic Typewriter actually allows anyone to paint original works using a common, 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter with each key outfitted with the full range of paint colors. Although the device is still just a prototype, Callahan has it priced between $3,000-$5,000. You can find out more about it here.
