Tom Hanks collects typewriters


I had no idea. Clearly he is a man of impeccable tastes. I’m obsessed with this fact almost as much as I’m obsessed with this tumblr, Letters of Note, on which I discovered a cute anecdote and hand-typed letter from the legend himself. The story goes that the folks over at the Nerdist Podcast wanted to secure Hanks as a guest on their show. Knowing he was an ardent typewriter collector, they sent him a 1934 Smith Corona along with their request. This was his response:TomHanksletterWhat a dude.

PS, More typewriter love from Kigali, Rwanda, Tattly the temporary tattoo company, and the perfect bookmobile.

    I loved that episode of The Nerdist, Hanks was so wonderfully geeky about typewriters and told a great story of trying to buy one from a little old lady… :)
