The people

There are a number of people in the typosphere you may find interesting.

One of the best ways to learn about the typewriter culture is to simply look at the people in it and what they're saying, doing, and who they're connected to.

Richard Polt

Polt has his finger on the pulse of the typosphere like no one else. Author of Typewriter Revolution, he has in-depth knowledge of the machine and the culture surrounding it, as well as the deeply complex issues involving our culture with regard to social media, aliteracy and thinking in the modern age.

Natasha Rawls

Natasha is an incredible example of an accomplished and award-winning author, and a hands-on typewriter rescuer. Her collection at last count hit over 40 typewriters. She's published multiple books, and is also pretty handy with a camera, recently publishing a photo book of  abandoned places in Memphis.

Lucas Dul

Lucas is Typewriter Chicago, and isn't just knowledgeable about typewriters, he's also a sharp communicator with an eye for imagery and video. His style is witty and quick, with a slight edge and a noticeable grit. And he's funny, in our opinion. Be sure to catch his YouTube channel where it's easy to let an hour blow by.

Paul Lundy

Arguably the authority on typewriters in the Seattle area, Paul is the proprietor of Bremerton Office Machines in Bremerton. He's also shouldered the brunt of the workload when it comes to servicing machines in the area. And by brunt, we mean pretty much the entirety of it.

Dan Marleau

Dan runs Typewriter Review, as well as One Typed Page, a blog site open to individuals who type and submit a single page every day. His knowledge of typewriters may rivlal that of Polt's, and we may have just stepped in it. You be the judge.
