  4. If we can make it in Brooklyn, we can make it anywhere!
    On the other hand, watch out for Cambridge Typewriter to put up a velvet rope and go "By Appointment Only."

  7. Hi Matt, found you from the Times article! I live in NH, near Portsmouth, where there is still a great little stationery store/office supplies/typewriter repair shop. They're always got 2 or 3 real beauties on display in the window, for sale. The typewriter lives!

  8. Congrats! I love the typosphere... being a former news reporter I still love the sound of a typewriter. Sometimes I still hit my computer keyboard as I did with the typewriter, and my wife always remind me to be gentle. hahaha. I read about you in the NYT.

  9. PS. By the way, the only problem for me to do my current job as a written technical translator from English into Spanish is that the typewriter in long translations is a small nightmare. But I love the old style, smell of paper, ink, and clean the mechanical typewriter.

  11. Great Article!
    My Autistic 6 yr old fell in love with manual typewriters after reading click clack moo (see http://www.bluecollardaughter.org/3/post/2011/03/click-clack-toe.html )
    Now that we have it sitting at our dining room table, I've kinda fallen for it too.
    Glad to see I'm not alone.
    Keep it up!

  12. NYT article caused me to dig out my mom's old Royal. She still works. (The typewriter, I mean.)

  13. Hey, caught the article in the times and thought it was really cool. I'd love for you to check out my own little project at http://projectunderwood.wordpress.com/ . It's been really interesting to see reaction from others in the typosphere and I'd love to hear your input.
