Simple. Classic. Courier.

We seemed to be surrounded by vintage typewriters this weekend. We're not sure if we just never noticed them before, or there was truly an abundance in Amish country, but either way we were taken with their balance of design and utility. And while the PC seems to have pushed the typewriter out of fashion, there is something wonderfully classic about its predecessor. We think photorealist Robert Cottingham would agree...
