|My 1961 Underwood portable typewriter.|
I learned there is an anti modern trend, an anti-culture of preteens and college students who are newly discovering typewriters and are fascinated by them. I recall seeing a typewriter for sale a year or so ago in western Pennsylvania and being amazed, "who'd buy that." Oh what a surprise to read of the new appreciation. There are some bloggers out there in the typosphere, "Adventures in Typewriterdom" is but one mentioned in the magazine article. Typosphere, a new word, I love that.

the paper up as I typed.
