Since 1867 typewriters have been used for creating visual art. The oldest known preserved example of typewriter art is a picture of a butterfly made in 1898 by Flora Stacey.

My design is made up of 4977 typewritten characters, in a fixed width font, in honour of the Typewriter (Black and White) contest. Please zoom in to the swatch view to see the detail.

The repeat is correct - it is showing slightly out on the previewer - you can see it without the glitch below:
