This charming book whisks the reader through a fascinating, lighthearted history of an object most people take for granted: the keyboard. Recounting the development of "Qwerty," the modern typing system millions use everyday-named for the first six letters on the keyboard, Q.W.E.R.T.Y.-TorbjArn Lundmark taps out a neat archaeology of each letter and symbol and brings the discussion into the twenty-first century by addressing the role of punctuation in the digital age. Lundmark's vast knowledge, solid research, and friendly, digestible style make this a perfect book for both the casual word-buff and the experienced linguist.
