The Williams Typewriter by Lucas Dul

Loose Dog Press announces its first nonfiction title:

by Lucas Dul

Typewriter connoisseur and repairman Lucas Dul takes a deep dive into the Williams, one of the most charming and clever of early typewriters. Full of facts, images, and wit, this book is a great addition to any collector's library.

“Lucas Dul seeks the truth and beauty of a grasshopper machine with the intensity and determination of an ant colony. The result is visibly striking. With knowledge, understanding and humor about the Williams designs, this book is the must-have, go-to authority on the history and technology of Williams models. As if all that were not enough, it is a joy to the eye through its illustrations, including some artwork by the author. The book is a benchmark for those who would write about typewriters.”

— Peter Weil, co-author (with Paul Robert), Typewriter: A Celebration of the Ultimate Writing Machine
