Typewriter: A Celebration of the Ultimate Writing Machine
Typewriter: A Celebration of the Ultimate Writing Machine | Paul Robert, Peter Weil
7 posts | 4 to read
Favored by many famous and upcoming writers and poets as their tool of choice, and benefitting from the nostalgia of steampunk and Mad Men, typewriters (like vinyl) have experienced a resurgence especially among hipsters. This fascinating book celebrates that renaissance through images of the most beautiful, curious, elaborate, and heralded typewriters in history, along with the stories of people who have created and used these beloved machines. Written by two typewriter collectors and experts, it features 125 color photographs tracing the typewriter s evolution from the nineteenth through the twentieth centuries ending with the advanced IBM Selectric along with print advertisements, vintage photographs, patents, and other memorabilia."

Visited the very cool Typewrongers Books today. Vintage copies, new releases and a fair sprinkling of typewriters, including some that you can use. Love it when i see a new independent store sprout up and thrive 😀📚📖

Fell in love with this old Royal #typewriter when I found it at a local vintage store. I just had to buy it to add to my little reading corner. I had a typewriter when I was growing up and used to spend hours typing away, creating scary stories like the ones I loved to read.
