this is one of my favourites. i stopped collecting when i got pregnant, mostly because we needed to make space for another person.
typewriter collecting is interesting in that typewriters are only of value to collectors. essentially, they are redundant machines. they serve no purpose having been replaced decades ago.
i love them because unlike computers they hold onto their history. the stories and letters written on them through out their lives remain. the history is visible on the ribbon and the drum.
