The Wonderful Hansen Writing Ball - Stripe fabric by candyjoyce on Spoonflower - custom fabric

Preview scale: 21.0 x 18.0 inches

The writing ball was invented by Rasmus Malling-Hansen in 1865 & was the first known typewriter. This design came 6th in the B&W Typewriter contest
The writing ball was an invention of Rasmus Malling-Hansen and was the first known type writer in 1865. This brick repeat is my representation of Rasmus' wonderful invention, and is also available with Vertical Stripes. I like to imagine how current computer keyboards etc would look if they had evolved from this ball shaped design.
