We're Still Typin'

So, I looked at the date of my last post and it has been a while. Don't beat yourself up. We have both been busy. I have had to prepare for the typewriter exhibit at GCC North and my upcoming lecture.

Halloween decorations have kept me busy.


There is, of course, my "photography."


But, I wanted to show you a few pictures of my 5th period typing. They have been slow to adopt the way of the typewriter, but the revolution is not won in great leaps. It is a slow process that converts adherents with logical argument.

  1. Thanks Ryan! It always makes me happy to see young people using typewriters.

  3. These are good photos, even to those of out of state. Yes. They are. They remind me of social issues library photos (because of the anonymity) but with the unlikely injection of a mechanical writing machine in each. If they don't make it to Uncommon Granularity, they ought to.

    1. That's really kind of you to say. I have been working on my photography and maybe it is paying off.

  4. These look like thoughtful hands.

    With all your experience, which models do you especially recommend for the classroom? I am providing some typewriters to a local teacher.

    1. Brothers. They are the best for a classroom setting. Very few problems. Smith-Coronae are nice, but the compound linkages can easily get messed up. Royals are fairly good, but they can be finicky. I should do a post about that! Thanks for the idea!

  5. They look like they are very conscience of what they are doing. Great photos. Good to see the CTP in action.

    I will keep a look out for Brothers.

  6. Don't forget the Olympias. I think you mentioned that SM's were proving pretty durable in the CTP rotation?
