Weighted Words

by Nic Olson

This book was printed when typewriters were the technology that reflected speed and efficiency. The words are embossed into the paper like braille. The words are three dimensional.

Words on screens don’t even physically exist. Words hand written on pages or napkins or hands are two dimensional visions of what we want to produce. Words printed on pages are formatted, edited, presentable ends. Words typed with typewriters are three dimensional, history holding, weighted ideas worthy of taking time to press each letter with purpose.

When written words become so weighty that they imprint on card paper, that they can be seen through the other side, is when the words are worth reading.
I hope to get there someday.
