Typewriters for me will always have a special meaning. Growing up, every time I would go visit my grandparents down the street, one of my favorite things to do was to go in my grandpa’s home library and play on his typewriter; or simply walk through the library listening to him type away… on one of his many typewriters.
The sound of a typewriter for me means freedom and creativity, it has always inspired me. I guess it brings me back to admiring him while at work.
My grandpa was and always will be a true inspiration for me. He was a poet, historian, professor and a writer, he was simply the best grandpa. I really wish I could have one of his typewriters in our apartment. Maybe one day I’ll convince my grandma or my dad to let me have one… I would treat it like a treasure.
Here are some pictures that made me smile, hope they make you smile too.
Do you admire typewriters too? Aren’t they a little magical? Have you ever used one?
Hope you get inspired!
