We’ve already featured famous people and their analogue cameras. And today, we have a different vintage machine on spotlight: typewriters! This mechanical device may be outdated but seeing them on pictures on this day and age still brings the analogue giddiness in us. See these masterful snapshots after the jump.
Tac-a-tac, tac-a-tac! You have probably owned and used one when desktop computers and hand-held gadgets were not around yet but nowadays, typewriters already belong to antique and rare, almost extinct, finds. What do these machinery have, anyway, and why are we still inclined to them?
It’s probably the typewriters’ vintage allure and style or its charming noise during one’s writing process which make us, even to date, swoon — most especially if these eye candies have been used by someone famous.
Here’s a various collection of black and white photographs of well-known people — actors, authors, directors, musicians, playwrights, and even presidents — and their solitary moments with their typewriters. Enjoy!
