This text deals with a book titled 'Writing Machines' of American professor of English and Design Media Arts Katherine N. Hayles. Hayles focuses on how literature has changed from inscriptions understood as marks of print to the dynamic images on PC screens, from books to technotexts. The project of American professor emphasizes the importance of medium as it is impossible to think about literature without thinking about materiality. Hayles proposes special terminology to describe literary artifact in the prism of its medium and analyses three different works which she names 'writing machines': Talan Memmott's web hypertext 'Lexia to Perplexia', Tom Phillips's artist's book 'A Humurk', Danielewski's print cult novel 'House of Leaves'.
