Very lucky find today! 1955 Remington quiet-riter in gray and green with case and manual. Needs a good clean, but it's in excellent condition. Only $25 at a downtown yard sale that @slaughterlizzie graciously found on Craigslist. Thanks for suggesting the yard sale trip in the first place, @ashleythevegan! #typewriterday
Day 22 of the Seattle Artist League Challenge: Typewriter Day
This is the Quiet-Riter Eleven portable typewriter from 1959 found in an alley garage sale on cap hill. For the base, I used a poem from the Beat poet Elise Cowen from that time. The typeface used for Cowen’s poem is the typewriter’s 10 cpi, Pica font.

HAPPY T Y P E W R I T E R DAY
On this day let us take a step back and appreciate these bulky, noisy yet stunning pieces of history. Let us not forget that some of the world's finest literature classics were written with these devices & recognise that the mechanical keyboard will never quite reach the magnificence of a classic typewriter in action (in my opinion) Hope everyone is having an epic weekend
One of my favourite things in my new office. Oh how I wish it still worked. I know its not practical these days to write on one...but the click clack sound as I craft a new story would be lovely. #TypewriterDay#amwriting#officespace
