(low) tech writer

ByDavid Maddalena

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
A collection of essays documenting the beautiful, old-school, low-tech places and things that still exist here and there in and around Silicon Valley. In my attempt to honor those things that don't get enough press in this technological society, I've written about everything from objects found in my kitchen (functional and edible) to almost- and already-obsolete tools like typewriters, pencils, and knots. Read Jaymi Heimbuch's review on Treehugger.com: http://www.treehugger.com/gadgets/must-read-book-low-tech-writer.html. Never anti-tech, but pro-(low) tech, these fifty essays chronicle the kinds of things and places that more-or-less hold their ground against the overwhelming flood of leading-edge tech that we are surrounded by. (First edition on real paper.)
