I Am TOM. I Like to TYPE. Hear That?

I Am TOM. I Like to TYPE. Hear That? | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it

For less important doodles in text, the kind that go no farther than your desk or refrigerator door, the tactile pleasure of typing old school is incomparable to what you get from a de rigueur laptop. Computer keyboards make a mousy tappy tap tappy tap like ones you hear in a Starbucks — work may be getting done but it sounds cozy and small, like knitting needles creating a pair of socks. Everything you type on a typewriter sounds grand, the words forming in mini-explosions of SHOOK SHOOK SHOOK. A thank-you note resonates with the same heft as a literary masterpiece.


The sound of typing is one reason to own a vintage manual typewriter — alas, there are only three reasons, and none of them are ease or speed. In addition to sound, there is the sheer physical pleasure of typing; it feels just as good as it sounds, the muscles in your hands control the volume and cadence of the aural assault so that the room echoes with the staccato beat of your synapses.

Typewriters Strike The Right Keys With Collectors - Deanna Dahlsad @ CollectorsQuest

Typewriters Strike The Right Keys With Collectors - Deanna Dahlsad @ CollectorsQuest | Antiques & Vintage Collectibles | Scoop.it
Hubby and I often laugh at what “kids today” don’t know or even recognize anymore—any kids, perhaps, other than our kids.

 

Our kids live with and use such charmingly antiquated (seemingly obsolete) items such as rotary dial telephones, film cameras, phonographs and tape players (including 8-track players), and even typewriters. Last summer, my son scored his first vintage typewriter—using what his momma taught him, he negotiated this 1970s era Royal Sprite for the price of just $1.

 

Plus a lot of typewriter links.
