    The Typewriter

    Last week, I got a nice brooche – or fibula, if you like – from the British Library. It is an enamel pin of an old fashioned typewriter, the kind of machine that’s also featured in the sidebar of this weblog.

No – for me, the typewriter is also a symbol of the emancipation of the writing and publishing woman. 0
