Author Cormac McCarthy's Typewriter Up For Auction

Author Cormac McCarthy's Typewriter on the Auction Block

Again, I will profess my love for vintage typewriters. They're such a lovely mix of beautiful typeface, simplicity, and vintage geek. Now, a very famous typewriter is going on the auction block.

The machine belongs to Cormac McCarthy, author of The Road (which was recently made into a movie) and No Country For Old Men. He purchased it from a Knoxville, TN pawnshop in 1963. After finding a similar vintage model in better condition (after all, who knows how many words were typed on the vintage Olivetti typewriter), McCarthy agreed to sell it, donating the proceeds to charity.

According to New York auction house Christie's, the typewriter is expected to bring in upwards of $15,000.

I have an old typewriter that looks like that, it uses a ribbon to print the letters on the paper and you have to really push down the keys because it is all manual!! But I doubt that mine will ever sell for that much because if it did then it would of been sold, a girl has got to eat.
