I'm solidly a computer girl. But I do love the sounds and textures of a typewriter. Back in my intern days, I spent many an hour addressing envelopes with an 1980's electric typewriter and wishing it came with a Ctrl-Z function.
This beauty is from Sundance's new collection of refurbished vintage typewriters available for $700 a pop. It comes with the original manual and a roll of ribbon.
(PS: Not that I was an intern in the 80's, it was circa Y2K but an old fashioned office)
