A Noted Farewell

{via}

Do you recall pecking away into the wee hours to get your book report completed? I do, and boy, I hated that thing. Even though a typewriter carries a sense of nostalgia and communication of yesteryear (not to mention a clanging headache), it is time to pack away your typewriter ribbon and toss the old correction fluid, folks. The Atlantic is reporting today that the last factory to make typewriters is closing its doors today. The archaic typewriter is really more of a vintage novelty to most these days, sort of like this wedding book idea we posted about oh so long ago. I suppose the only end to this story, naturally, would be THE END.
