My holiday time in rural Ohio provided me with some lovely opportunities to rampage around some antique and second hand stores that were chock-full of vintage papers, just begging me to repurpose them (which I will. Oh yes, I will). One particular store, whose seams were near to bursting with antique-y awesomeness, also introduced me to several vintage typewriters. Some were missing keys, some looked more than a little worse for wear, but ALL of them were remarkably stunning.
So, I thought I’d pay some Vintage Typewriter Homage (VTH) here.
Feast your pupils on the following glorious typewriters, which I’ve borrowed from the appropriately named VintageTypewriterShoppe.com:
Did I mention that all of the above are FOR SALE?!? Yeah. You have to be independently wealthy in order to afford them, but it’s still fun to pretend.
The following images are of more “retro”-writers, which I’ve borrowed from the ever-so-lovely UppercaseGallery:
OK, there are a gazillion post-worthy images on Uppercase’s site (and on VintageTypewriterShoppe’s site)… I could be here all night. So, instead, I’ll promise a Round 2 VTH sometime soon.
