Description:

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.

©Candy Joyce 2014 My designs can be re-scaled, re-coloured or reworked to suit your project so please feel free to ask. I am also available to create custom designs and licensed works, please get in touch to discuss your requirements. If you make anything with my designs please share your pictures, I do love to see my designs in action!
