Here are my other sightings from my recent typewriter safari with Richard Polt at Cincy's Riverside Centre and Ohio Valley antique malls. Among the lo-tech pieces- adding machines, a couple of interesting cameras, and a cool reel projector. The more awesome sightings were furniture- very affordable library card catalogues that I was lusting over ("If only I lived in Cincy...") and a really beautiful mid-century mod brasilia credenza/display cabinet that went for $175, if I remember correctly. Sigh.
I'm currently working on a couple of academic writing deadlines, that means sitting in my office-cum-writing-cave in front of a computer the whole day (incidentally, Richard is also holed-up in his writing cave but luckier him, he's gone finishin' his typewriter book). That said, it was nice to horse around with colleagues one bright morning on our way to a workshop. These installations were at downtown Chicago's Millennium Park. They look quite surreal, especially since they dot various areas of the park. One friend's caption for this pic- "lumberjack" on the right, "bad boy" on the left. He forgot to name the guy in the middle. (:
