There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed. –Ernest Hemingway
At some point my obsession with Ernest Hemingway led to a love and appreciation of typewriters. Nothing is more pure then a typed letter on a manual type writer. I’m sure this fascination with type runs parallel to my affinity of natural, non-plastic materials. The Writing Machines group on Flickr has an interesting archive of different makes and models of manual typewriters. Some of my favorites are pictured below.
