a personal connectioN

When I was little, I happily tapped letters on my mother’s machine. I loved seeing thoughts become tangible, and marvelled in the satisfaction of seeing my words printed on the page. It was my first taste of both graphic design and publishing — topics that would become my profession and my passion. This simple ribbon tin purchased on eBay reignited my early obsession with the typewriter. In search of more artifacts and ephemera over the next decade, I collected from the rich, graphic history of the typewriter.
