Old Machines

By April 17, 2012May 8th, 2012Blog

Stray Love is set in a clunky, messy pre-computer world. It’s a world of inky fingers and jammed keys. I’ve always had a thing for typewriters and typewriter ephemera so this collection of vintage typewriter ribbon tins (courtesy of Janine Vangool) makes me very happy.

I also love this photograph of Stan Bevington at Coach House Press. Give me dirt and grinding noises any day. I will always be wistful for old machines.

p.s. Stray Love has recently received a few nice reads: here and here and here and here and here. I really appreciate it when writers take time to review work by their peers.
