Typewriter Haiku

Image

I was inspired this morning by the typewriter at Peach Farm Studios, so I pulled out our old typewriter and started drawing.

It was at first just going to be some really quick scribbles but then became more involved. Super fun. The tricky part for me is not getting too fussy over the key mechanisms. Ink, graphite, paper and type. 5.5″ x 8″.

If you take the extra step and actually send to us in the MAIL (NOT via email) the ORIGINAL piece of art or the ORIGINAL HANDWRITTEN poem, we will MAIL a letterpress print to you as a “Thank you” gift from Peach Farm Studio.

    I miss my typwriter, despite the pain it caused me…with my mis-typing, smudgy pages and correction fluid. I loved the sound it made and the beauty of a typed page. Thank you for reminding me of that wonderful piece of technology.

    • Maybe a typewriter is in your future. It sounds like you have a great affinity for them. Your welcome, and thank you for the comment.
