Just My Type

"It is easily overlooked that what is now called vintage 
was once brand new." ~ Tony Visconti

Nothing changes faster than technology. A decade ago we didn't even have smart phones. That's hard to imagine given that there have been fifteen iterations of iPhone since its inception in 2007.  I am often an early adopter, yet I still find myself charmed by vintage technology, especially cameras and typewriters -- technology that enables creativity. I'm always on the lookout for vintage cameras to add to my mini collection (If you see any Beau Brownies or Kodak Bantam Specials, let me know!), and I'm still searching for the ideal typewriter -- one that helps me channel my inner Hemingway. This WWII-era Royal comes pretty close.
