Typewriter of the poet and author e. e. cummings:
Through March of 2012, 250 objects from the collections of the New York Public Library were displayed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the opening of the library’s Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. A few of the objects exhibited were typewriters, including this one.
Did you notice? The keyboard shows only capital letters! Did that anger cummings, or make him crazy? Not that we can see.
