How it started.
Christopher Damico, Founder, Chief Creative Officer & Collector
Chris has worked as a marketing creative since 2004. Around that same time he began collecting typewriters and books and never looked back.
Chris loves old stuff, especially books and art. He began Wistmore to celebrate the past in new, creative ways. Classic literature and art gives us the ability to travel through time, peering into the past and allowing artists to communicate with us even though they're long gone.
Favorites authors and artists include: Poe, Shelley, London, Hemingway, Eliot, Fitzgerald, Verne, Twain, Tolkien, da Vinci, Van Gogh, Monet, Bouguereau, Cassatt, O'Keefe, Bonheau, Remington, Mucha, Klimt, Rembrandt.
