it was amazing

Beautiful photos of 80 fantastic typewriters from 1874 to 1969 with a brief history of each; some the last of its kind. Anthony Casillo tells us how he became that accidental collector and how he acquired some of these vintage beauties. I personally fell in love with several. If you're a typewriter aficionado this is the book for you.

20.0% "Beautiful photos of 80 vintage typewriters and their history, plus Tom Hanks' forward, "11 Reasons to Use a Typewriter." My favorite so far, a sleek, stainless steel, art deco, beauty from 1935, a Royal Deluxe; thought to have been the demo model."
