Masters' Machines.

I love this lopsided line-up of illustrious typewriters. With the exception of Cormac McCarthy's sprightly teal number, they all somehow seem to befit their owners. My favorite is Bob Dylan's; however, I'm not banking on owning it any time soon - according Booktryst, Hemingway's will fetch $60,000-$80,000, while McCarthy's sold for $254,500. (Thanks, Paris Review.)

More word-related reading:
-Expired, a photo series by Kerry Mansfield focusing on withdrawn library books.
-Ekaterina Panikanova's painted pages.
-Beautiful words = nightmarish mind?
