Literary Guns

Mightier Than Series by Ravi Amar Zupa

Everybody knows that words are mightier than swords, but what about guns?  As evidence of the all-conquering power of words, multi-disciplinary artist Ravi Amar Zupa created a series of steampunk-esque sculptures of weapons made from old typewriter parts.  Even the ammunition is made of repurposed pen nibs, thereby once again demonstrating the power of persuasion over force.
