Ah, JvM again...
Yeah well, still one of the worst agencies in the world.

And this one in particular. First I thought it was supposed to be an ad for cars that's just trying to be alternative by not showing cars.

how many jung von matt ads does it take to get it hammered in your heads?

do most writers still use an archaic typewriter? i'm not convinced. however, i know it makes for a nicer image from an art direction point of view.

Beautiful visuals, mate.

I use an 'archaic' typewriter or a pen and pad for all my writing that isn't work. I know a lot of authors that do that. It feels like art.

It also gets the idea across much better than a computer screen ever could.

there is a delightful layer that is added when you use a typewriter, a more tactile relationship with the words. you have to be more patient and attentive to what you are putting down. i know writers, novelists, who will only work on a typewriter. not for fear of technology, but for love of the attention you have to pay to your words. there is no delete button.

good works.
but all of the short stories are about death.
i wonder why.
