typewriter notecards call for submissions


Would you like to collaborate with UPPERCASE and be published by Chronicle Books? Doesn't that sound amazing?

TYPEWRITER NOTECARDS is a boxed set of 20 notecards and envelopes featuring Polaroid or lo-fi/retro-inspired photographs of vintage typewriters, taken by UPPERCASE readers. It will combine our love of outdated technologies into beautiful notecards suitable for a variety of occasions. Chronicle Books plans to publish it for the Spring 2014 season as a follow-up to Shoegazing Notecards, curated and designed by UPPERCASE editor Janine Vangool.

We look forward to your submissions! Please keep in mind that the images will be used for notecards, so we will be looking for images appropriate for a variety of occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and weddings, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, friendship, thanks, general greetings, etc. The typewriter should be a prominent, but not necessarily an exclusive element in the photograph. Typewritten text, keys, hands, fingers and other props are all ok. If a person is represented we prefer no faces (for example, a person typing as seen from behind, or perhaps wearing a hat or with their face somewhat obscured thus making the card more universally appealing rather than a portrait of a specific person.)
