Laptop Typewriter

The hand feeds the machine, and vice versa.  In this remarkable 1936 poster, notice how the left hand is feeding the typewriter paper.  The white sheet anticipates the blankness of the screen.  It’s even tilted in the appropriate direction, throwing into relief the future history of the laptop on the lap.
