Just My Type: Typewriter Gifts & Goods For You & Your Domain

We’re all about books here at Book Riot, and sometimes, we’ll extend our reach to items which are, as we like to say, “book adjacent.” That means language and punctuation and grammar and journals and writing and, well, in the case of this post, typewriters.

Because books have to come from somewhere. Or, well, books once came from that somewhere called a typewriter and it’s hard not to love the aesthetic value of those old charming machines.


I recently acquired my first vintage typewriter. It works, but it’s less about being a useful tool and more about being a piece of shelving decor in my home. It’s a gray Royal and looks fantastic on the middle shelf of one of the book cases in my living room.

And, like with my love of ampersands, I see my need to acquire a few more typewriter gifts and goods as one I’ll need to satiate sooner, rather than later.

If you’re a lover of the typewriter, then this round-up of typewriter gifts and goods will strike all the right keys.
