I have always been pushed by the negative. The apparent failure of a play sends me back to my typewriter that very night, before the reviews are out. I am more compelled to get back to work than if I had a success. --
Tennessee Williams

I am amazed; until the day I die I shall wonder how Whittaker Chambers got into my house to use my typewriter. -

How To Type With A Printing Press

  1. Hi Rich, yes, interesting stuff. I was never familiar with hot metal 'typewriter' fonts. Caslon, Baskerville, Times etc. Standards. But there's another twist you'll be familiar with. The Compugraphic and Letraset & Mecanorma dry-transfer sheets of my early graphics career were always American Typewriter. Not German, Italian, French or British. Not just 'Typewriter', always American Typewriter. Strange, but quite nice really.
