Michener Typewriter

You don't see relics like this 1960 era Olympus typewriter. It's hard to believe that a writer turned out every page using this type of technology.

Wow that it is old. I wonder how long it would take me to write the code for Aminus3...

Old fashioned shot. Lots of writers write book on this kind of typewriter, imagine without the possibility to come back if there is a mistake, or no orthographic corrector !!!

That was already flat screen technology ! I had one when I was a teenager. :)

I like the presentation with the pages still on the table an in the typewriter (as opposed to just displaying only the typewriter itself)
