About Youd
For five years, Tim Youd has set out to retype 100 novels in a very unique way. He types each novel on a single sheet of paper on the same make and model typewriter that the original author used. In an artistic twist, though, he uses a top sheet so that the bottom page only receives indentations of letters, unless the ink bleeds or breaks through the top page. The photo below is a recent diptych by Youd.
