Burning Man.

I’ve never wanted to go to “BURNING MAN” before, but after seeing this shot — of a woman admiring this huge “UNDERWOOD PORTABLE” sculpture … I may have to find a ticket. Please Share

Passport cameraman/typewriter fan.

I dropped in to an unknown passport photographer yesterday.  My hair wasn’t perfect, it was a hot day, and I didn’t do any prep — but Vin said we needed to get new photos for some travel paperwork and I needed to do it pronto. The YELP reviews for Benny’s shop seemed fine, and he…

Tons of typewriters.

 Denise Avchen and I walked into Beverly Hills to have lunch — and along the way, we stopped to see Steve Soboroff’s exhibit at The Paley Center … and I fell in love with his collection. He typed a line from each machine below,  a very cool idea. Please Share

Huntington Library’s bookshop.

http://www.huntington.org/ Jennifer Hronek, my wedding planner, is also my hook-up for all things stationery. She and I spent a wonderful day ambling around the Huntington Museum in Pasadena a few years ago. It’s time for me to get back there, she reported.  After a closure for renovations, it’s BACK! To entice me, she sent this…

Gladly mistaken, never forgotten.

Some of us have never forgotten the feel of metal keys under our fingertips… Matt Groening, creator of the longest-running animation series in America, “THE SIMPSONS”, uses a typewriter for all his scripts. So does WOODY ALLEN, filmmaker. And DANIELLE STEELE, who’s the #1-selling novelist in the U.S. with over 100 books to her name……

Danielle Steele has written more than 100 books on her typewriter.

Danielle Steele, who’s America’s best-selling author and has written more than 100 books, types all of hers on a 1946 Olympia manual typewriter. She’s worth more than $385 million, “Celebrity Net Worth” reports. I’d say there’s got to be some connection between hand, heart & bank accounts … maybe I need an older typewriter! http://www.celebritynetworth.com/authors/danielle-steel-net-worth/…

Kate Spade does keys.

LOUISE A. MARLER, my friend who’s a “Typewriter Artist” — found this Kate Spade purse that features typewriter keys as its form of closure. She also discovered PERSOL sunglasses that are part of its “Typewriter” line. Who knew? Please Share

Hello, Dear.

My friend George Monas knows how much I love typewriters.   This was a great card he found — I got it in today’s mail. I’m going to call him right now and thank him.  Very cool. Please Share

A keyboard without a “love you” key.

As I sipped my morning coffee — trying to wake up — I noticed this cartoon… and the typing, of course, caught my eye. When I looked a little closer, I liked his text — “to convey such thoughts (of love)” has no key… But then I thought — “If he had a typewriter, he…
