typewriter of capricorn

Typewriter in the Henry Miller Library.


Did Miller use it? I dunno. But it was cool looking. ;)

    I love that typewriter, but I really really love the title. I want to rub my cheek up against the title. Typewriter of Capricorn. I declare.

    Being a journalist at hear, I have a thing for old typewriters. Want to start collecting them...like my old cameras...they have just industrial individuality and character. Plus, you just feel better putting your smoke and scotch down next to an old Underwood than your computer keyboard.

    Great capture.

    perfect in every respect.

    I love that several of you saw flames in the thumbnail! So cool. :)

    I took several photos of the typewriter; more may show up. I also took photos of books and watercolors and a funny photograph of miller with a nakkid lady's behind that incited a letter of offense. Both of which are framed and on the wall.

    Thanks for the comments, all. Like Mark said, I think there is something special about old cameras and old typewriters.

    (and special thanks to Greg who inadvertently gave my photo entry into Entitled.)

    I love writer, and I love the typewriter! I actually learned to type on something very similar to that. The theory was that if you can type on that, you can type on anything. Damn keys would always jam up, though.

    Hi Marya,

    I have used this in a blog post - mickmorrison.com/?p=489. It's a small non-commercial research blog. The image is quite nice and fits the theme of my post.

    I hope this is ok?
