Celebrate retro tech with Michele Maule's typewriter prints


As much as I love my laptop, with its WiFi and kick-ass battery life and portability and up-to-date functionality and all, I still get nostalgic when I see a beautiful old typewriter. I think a lot of writers feel the same: we've all seen those Hollywood films (from His Girl Friday to All the President's Men to 84 Charing Cross Road) where writers bashed out their masterpieces the old-fashioned way, with paper, an extra ribbon and a pile of carbons beside them.

Last time I moved house, I forced myself to admit my old Olivetti was never going to get used again, but it was still hard to say goodbye, and when I passed a typewriter store in Australia earlier this year, I was pleased to see that such a place existed.

If you're as much of a sucker for old technology as I am (don't get me started on phones that you actually dial...) then you might also like these typewriter prints by Michele Maule on Etsy. They both celebrate the beauty of typewriter engineering, and tell stories of love and loss. The print pictured above is called I Miss You.
