I bought myself a great big Underwood …


“Red Writer” © 1981. A Lithograph from an Original Silkscreen Print by Anne Laddon.

In response to my question posted on Anne’s blog pageDid she own a typewriter? Anne replied:

“I learned to type on an Underwood, found one in an antique store in Virginia in the early ’70s and created the silkscreen from it then.”

The “Red Writer” is mounted on hardboard with an aluminium and glass frame. It’s big, it’s bold, it’s beautiful.
