Young typist at work.

The Lettera is on loan to a burgeoning young typist, the daughter of a friend who I mentioned has been asking her parents for a typewriter.  Shelly was kind enough to send me pictures of her with the typewriter.  She looks like a pro, doesn’t she?

    Typewriter donations to the young folk are a great way to plant the seeds of future creativity, while also reminding them that the world of modern media didn’t start in 2008 with the iPhone.

      You’re completely right!

  • Martha Lea

    Ahh! Really super to see kids at typewriters.

    • Tam Lee

      Yeah, it’s really great! It makes me happy to know that even in this age of iphones and tablet pcs kids still haven’t forgotten about typewriters!

  • Bill MacLane

    Delightful to see her enjoying typing.

    • Tam Lee

      Yeah, it’s great to see kids involving themselves in something other than tablets and iphones.

    Thank you so much, Tam! My oldest even got in on the fun…and she’s one of those super-techy teenagers, so it was nice to see her get back down to the basics :)

    • Tam Lee

      Yay, I’m so happy! =D Glad they’re enjoying it.
