54 Points, Typewriter Hunter

"Why typewriters?"
It's a question that comes up when people find out that I not only collect them, but prefer to write on them.
Analog writing is a much more tactile experience.
It's like comparing an artist painting with oils or using a wacom tablet.
You hear it.
FEEL it.
Get your hands dirty when having to change the ribbons, pay attention to margins, actually think for a moment before attacking the keys.
My story started with a couple of cheap beaters found in a thrift store for under $10 and has quickly progressed into close to fifty.
What started as a interest, became a hobby, then passion, and now could arguably be called an affliction.
But it's one that I intentionally infected myself with and haven't regretted even a little.
