The connoisseur's guide to the typewriter, entertaining and practical What do thousands of kids, makers, poets, artists, steampunks, hipsters, activists, and musicians have in common? They love typewriters—the magical, mechanical contraptions that are enjoying a surprising second life in the 21st century, striking a blow for self-reliance, privacy, and coherence against dependency, surveillance, and disintegration. The Typewriter Revolution documents the movement and provides practical advice on how to choose a typewriter, how to care for it, and what to do with it—from National Novel Writing Month to letter-writing socials, from type-ins to typewritten blogs, from custom-painted typewriters to typewriter tattoos. It celebrates the unique quality of everything typewriter, fully-illustrated with vintage photographs, postcards, manuals, and more.

Development of Social Sciences A Librarian’s Companion The present book entitled, “Development of Social Sciences: A Librarian’s Companion” is an attempt to study the fundamental concept of the umbrella term `Social Science' which normally consist of four basic disciplines namely Political Science, Economics, Sociology and History though at a later stage the multidisciplinary approaches have widened the scope of social science thereby resulted into the inclusion of several disciplines which in one context or the other are directly related to the study of human beings. The present effort intends to study the role of social science contributors, organizations, institutions, documentation centers and the social science information sources available in the context of the development of social science disciplines. The book is divided into five chapters namely (i) Social Science: An Overview (ii) Social Science Contributors (iii) Social Science organizations and institutions (iv) National Documentation Centers in Social Sciences and (v) Information Sources in Social Science. The book will be useful to the students pursuing the studies in the field of library and information science, teachers involved in teaching the course which involves the teaching of multidisciplinary content especially the social science vis-à-vis libraries as well as by all those who wants to study and do research the role of libraries and their contribution in the growth and development of social science disciplines.
