A collection of confessional, hilarious, heartbreaking notes written anonymously on a public typewriter for fans of PostSecret and Other People's Love Letters. When Michael Gustafson and his wife Hilary opened Literati Bookstore in Ann Arbor, Michigan, they put out a typewriter for anyone to use. They had no idea what to expect. Would people ask metaphysical questions? Write mean things? Pour their souls onto the page? Yes, no, and did they ever. Every day, people of all ages sit down at the public typewriter. Children perch atop grandparents' knees, both sets of hands hovering above the metal keys: I LOVE YOU. Others walk in alone on Friday nights and confess their hopes: I will find someone someday. And some leave funny asides for the next person who sits down: I dislike people, misanthropes, irony, and ellipses ... and lists too. In NOTES FROM A PUBLIC TYPEWRITER Michael and designer Oliver Uberti have combined their favorite notes with essays and photos to create an ode to community and the written word that will surprise, delight, and inspire.… (lisätietoja)

This is a really enjoyable book containing snippets of things people have typed on a typewriter that's set out for public use in a bookstore. The store owner had envisioned it being used for a community-written story when he first set it out, but I think it works better this way: people use the typewriter to write notes, connect with each other, propose, worry, remember...

Someday I hope to get to visit this bookstore. ( )

It is very hard to imbue the spirit of a bookstore into words, but Gustafson and Uberti have succeeded. I feel as if I have visited Literati despite never having set foot in Ann Arbor, Michigan. I look forward to visiting their beautiful typewriter-adorned store when the global pandemic has subsided. ( )

This is a book meant to be devoured and then savored on a second read.

The idea of publishing notes left by anonymous people on typewriters in an independent bookstore is gimmicky, but the way the Gustafson orders the messages and includes his own miniature essays keeps the book just this side of artifice. ( )

A collection of comments typed by customers at the Literati Bookstore in Ann Arbor, Michigan, which makes a typewriter (and paper) available for public use. I confess I wasn’t eager to read it. I’m not a big believer in the wisdom of what used to be called “the man on the street,” regardless of sex, and there are so many ways a book like this could go wrong, starting with cloying sentimentality and moving on to cutesiness, bad jokes, and unrecognized quotations mistaken for original wisdom when neither. But I’m a typewriter enthusiast, and fortunately, I was surprised. The bookstore owners are smart people and attract interesting patrons. The bookstore logo is a typewriter, and people bring them typewriters, and after a while they hired an artist to cover an exterior wall with the writing they’ve collected.

The quotes are pretty good, although many people can’t resist reaching for an aphorism. Kids are always typewriters’ biggest fans, and they make several of the best contributions.

Ultimately, this is a love story to the bookstore and its customers—not to typewriters. The author tells the story of a woman who donated a Hermes 3000 to the store.


“If we put this typewriter out, be warned: It’s a death sentence,” I said. “Once a typewriter goes public, it’s got six months.”

I showed her our beautiful ruins—typewriters maligned by public use. They get knocked over; carriages malfunction; hammers bend. Many customers type too fast. The keys jam. In an attempt to fix those keys, a type-bar link detaches….I know all public typewriters will break eventually. When they do, we set some in our store window overlooking the sidewalk. The Boulevard of Broken Typewriters. It’s a nice view, at least.


There are stories interspersed with the typed bits: of how the typewriters connected a local street character with a seven-year-old boy, of a typewritten marriage proposal, of ghosts in the bookstore. They’re pretty good. It’s a testament to the author’s character that stories are about people in all their quirkiness and not about his own taste and wit.

There are several photos of a beautiful Rheinmetall machine, a make I have yet to see in person. In one of the photos, a customer has typed:

fart fart fa rt fa rt fart fart fart

My instincts about people are confirmed after all. ( )
