The typewriter

Anybody out there still own a typewriter? I've got a couple I like to use because in this age of perfectly kerned computer-set fonts, it's refreshing to see something typewritten with uneven baselines and faded characters. I've had a soft spot for typewriters for some time (oh my golly, did I ever tell you about the time I spent about 4 hours in a 100+ degree attic one August digging through old typewriters that were being given away ... for free?!? I came out sweaty and smelly and filthy and it was one of the best afternoons of my life!) But I digress ...

If you follow me on Pinterest, you've seen I post the magazine "Uppercase" in my book bag. Well, "Uppercase" is releasing a new book about the typewriter and all manner of typewriter memorabilia next year. You can read all about it and order your copy here:
