The first practical typewriter was constructed by the American Christopher Latham Sholes in 1867. One of the first to use typewriters was such authors as Mark Twain (this is how he wrote the novel “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”), Leo Tolstoy, or Bolesław Prus.
Typewriters, once so common, are now being replaced by computers and printers. The last typewriter factory was in India. It was closed in 2011.
Today, typewriters are unique collectibles that can be an interesting element of interior design.
