Flickr Find | Typewriter Ribbon Tins

Flickr Find is a weekly column of interesting things found on the amazing and inspiring photo sharing website Flickr.

While browsing the Coudal website this morning I came across this beautiful set of images of typewriter ribbon tins. The packaging and sheer variety make the tins fun to look at, plus the the little metal containers would be the perfect object to start a collection of. Keep that in mind for your next trip to the flea market. The complete set of images can be seen here.

    Didn’t Holly Golightly leave one of these in Paul Varjak’s mailbox?

    Holly’s ribbon was in a cardboard box but those metal cans are beautiful. Are there any pics of Buggy Whips?
