Can’t wait to try Mr. J’s Words in Flight method of airmail. BUT for the nonce, will stick with another medium of transport–the river near my home.
Tossing in the missive here–yes, it’s not completed yet-figure that if Typosphereans could read the whole thing online, they might not bother reaching out to grab this half-sized bottle–still containing a few drops of good Ouzo! (from Plomari ) And– ha-on the company’s website–their contact page shows paper rolled up in a bottle–bit of authorization for this move.

Burst the balloon: Conceptual artist Jordan Johnson ties helium balloons to signed and numbered pages so that they fly away when he is finished typing them. Happening today, 3 September in (where else?) Brooklyn, NY.
Well, with the price of stamps these days, will not be surprised if this catches on all over the typosphere !
Johnson will be launching his missives today at the Marathon of Speeches in Brooklyn. This Brooklyn Paper article has a bit more–er, except the time. Have resolved to: 1) Shamelessly borrow this idea for the October Type-IN; 2) Type and send a quick letter using a similar method and slightly different medium of travel. More on that in the next post.
SO– Here’s the scoop: first one (Friday, 19 Sept.) is a big benefit to help make the 215 Lit Fest happen. So it costs money (a cool twenty), but you will have a good time in a bookstore like you have never seen.There will be typewriters, including an Olivetti Lettera 32 on auction, and other goodies.
Details RIGHT HERE.
Second one (Sat., 19 October) is part and parcel of the 215 Fest, which will bring a great array of literary and musical talent to Philadelphia. It’s outside, free and will feature amplified typewriter haiku… among other things! DETAILS SOON.
Well, dang — here’s the link
Nice montage– Tom Hanks, the Pope and me — ha!
OH– and a nice, web-only piece about Magic Margins and Ryan Adney, Right Here.
Greetings, Mr. Steven Huang, co-producer of this past Sunday’s Type-IN NYC, took time to make some good photographs from the event.
