French artist Éric Nado takes ordinary typewriters and turns them into convincing looking weapons. See more of his work here. Website is in French.

32 typewriting machines are transformed into evocative Typewriter Guns by reassembling every piece of the original machines. The series triggers the idea that words are stronger than arms and shape history.
