Rosenzweig Has A Thing For Typewriters Too

Jan. 7, 2010

Editor in Chief Mark Rosenzweig and I have a few things in common. One, we are journalists. Two, we like old typewriters.

Editor in Chief Mark Rosenzweig and I have a few things in common. One, we are journalists. Two, we like old typewriters.

However, Mark is a true typewriter aficionado.  After reading my recent blog post, Do Games Shape Our Future?, he sent me a link to his Flickr page that showcases his 60 machines.

One of my favorites is the Hammond 1b. Mark tells me it was manufactured in Manhattan in the mid-1880s.

As for Mark, he fancies the Lambert, which dates to about 1910. "[It] works so differently from other machines," he explains.

Be sure to check out Mark's collection of machines – it's sure to impress! http://www.flickr.com/photos/gthawk/sets/72157623030622276/
