Notes From A Public Typewriter

"This is a delightfully quirky, heart-warming celebration of the 'messy, smudgy, imperfect beauty' of a past analogue era of ink, paper and mechanical keys. " —The Guardian

Featured on NBC News, NPR's All Things Considered, and Michigan Radio.

Dear reader,

On Literati Bookstore's lower level, we leave out a typewriter that anyone can type on. There are no editors, no agents. Just a blank page, and you. Over the years, thousands of people have left notes on our public typewriter. In 2018, we published a collection of our favorite notes, stories, and photographs into a book, Notes From A Public Typewriter. It is our ode to those who have supported Literati Bookstore and the written word. 

I am thrilled these notes can live people's bookshelves, both in Ann Arbor and across the world. 

Yours in bookselling,

Michael Gustafson, Co-editor, NOTES // Owner, Literati Bookstore
