The Presidential Letters

Presidential ascii artwork by none other than typewriter artists working with a single monospaced typeface. Nathan Veach's illustration of Abraham Lincoln is featured with only the letters of his name. A typewriter portrait of George W. (not that one), whose birthday we are celebrating today, is featured in a 1939 Popular Science magazine. An interesting sidenote—this is the same issue that reports an exclusive on Vest-Pocket Telephones. They predict telephones without connecting wires will be a possibility in the near future. I'm not kidding. Popular Science gets a scoop on this nearly 72 years ago.
