1957 Remington Quiet-Riter

Very similar to the Letter-Riter. Same army green, same hefty footprint on my desk. It's hard to imagine that these machines were top of the line more than sixty years ago, but then again in sixty years people will look at my laptop as no more technically advanced than a stick.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
