That impervious, glorious, perfectly engineered marvel of textdom has been around since June 23, 1868. A typewriter is officially defined as a mechanical or electromechanical machine for writing in characters similar to those produced by printer’s type by means of keyboard-operated types striking a ribbon to transfer ink or carbon impressions onto the paper. Typically one character is printed per keypress. The machine prints characters by making ink impressions of type elements similar to the sorts used in movable type letterpress printing.

Here are just a few thoughts on the typewriter. Enjoy!
