A project from Spass hat Zukunft:

A visual history of the computer keyboard and the etymology of the symbols most widely accessed through the shift key. As a project aimed to introduce typography through its most common usage, the book promotes the deep history to our most commonly used symbols, which though used daily, are often ignored for their beauty and fascination.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
