You may as well buy a typewriter now. You know, deep down, that they will have their day again. Like many other staples of the analog life, we look upon the rickety keys of these machines and something tightens in our gut. Whenever you get that feeling, buy stock in it.
I’ve had a number of manual typewriters pass through my life like fickle lovers. Yes, they chose and rejected me, not the other way around. Each and every one started strong and then decided to stop working. Years of use will do that. One even went through TWO Nanowrimos, which probably destroyed its soul as well as its Z key.
