“Typewriters and the art of self-sufficiency”

by | Dec 3, 2015 | Book | 2 comments

“It’s possible to spend a fair length of time doing something intuitively, just because you can sense somehow that that thing is good and right and beneficial for you; then there is an added pleasure that can be gotten after someone else comes along and articulates — using clear language and beautifully reasoned arguments — what you had so far only felt on instinct.
This unexpected but entirely welcome articulation is what typewriter expert and philosophy professor Richard Polt’s new book, “The Typewriter Revolution: A Typist’s Companion for the 21st Century,” came along this fall and did for me and my roughly four-years-and-counting intuitive love of writing on typewriters.

This lovely essay / book review by Kathleen Rooney of Poems While You Wait appears in today’s Chicago Tribune.

    I loved that first paragraph when I read it this morning. It is exactly correct, and I think describes Typospherians to a "T". :D
