TYPEWRITER NOTECARDS is a boxed set of 20 notecards and envelopes featuring photographs of vintage typewriters, taken by UPPERCASE readers. It will combine our love of this outdated-but-not-forgotten icon into beautiful notecards suitable for a variety of occasions. (Please note that we have opened this up to all varieties of photography, not just Polaroid!)
We look forward to your submissions! Please keep in mind that the images will be used for notecards, so we will be looking for images appropriate for a variety of occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and weddings, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, friendship, thanks, general greetings, etc.
The typewriter should be a prominent, but not necessarily an exclusive element in the photograph. Typewritten text, keys, hands, fingers and other props are all ok. If a person is represented we prefer no faces (for example, a person typing as seen from behind, or perhaps wearing a hat or with their face somewhat obscured thus making the card more universally appealing rather than a portrait of a specific person.)
HAVE FUN AND BE CREATIVE!
(Not just photos of typewriter keys or old machines straight on without additional interest or flair, please.)
Chronicle Books plans to publish it for the Spring 2014 season as a follow-up to Shoegazing Notecards, curated and designed by UPPERCASE editor Janine Vangool.
DEADLINE: JANUARY 28 for submissions
