AMAZING REINVENTION Of THE TYPEWRITER

AMAZING REINVENTION Of THE TYPEWRITER

jeanniejeanniejeannie.co.uk BLOG Friday 27th September 2019

I just love this advert.

The ad appears in the “Chums Home Selection” catalogue included in some of Saturday’s (21st September 2019) national daily newspapers.

The advert is for an 11” Portable Typewriter. The ad says: “No Computer Required. This neat machine requires no power, is always at hand and is complete with all you need to start work straight away”.

I’m not sure whether the marketing people are writing this blurb tongue in cheek or see it as a replacement for the computer.

Some of us have sweated over a typewriter typing millions of words before computers were even a twinkle in Bill Gates or Steve Jobs eye.

None the less very nostalgic to see the typewriter making a comeback, like vinyl and C90 cassette tapes.

The cost is £185 down from £225. Replacement ribbons £10.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE FOR THE DAY

Let us toast to animal pleasures, to escapism, to rain on the roof and instant coffee, to unemployment insurance and library cards, to absinthe and good hearted landlords, to music and warm bodies and contraceptives and to the ‘good life’ whatever it is & wherever it happens to be. – Hunter S. Thompson

HAPPINESS IS…

Happiness is…the clickert clack of writing a book on a typewriter
