For many people, the sounds of a typewriter are but memories from 30 or more years ago, or something now heard only in movies. The United States says only a few typewriter repair shops operating today. Yet these stores are doing good business. A new generation is discovering the joy of the feel and sound of old typewriters. And an old generation is showing that it never fall out of love with the machines. 80-year-old x is the owner of the x Typewriter Company in New York City. His father founded the company in 1932. x works at the business with his son, x, and grandson, x. He said: What's surprising to me is that the younger generation is taking a liking to typewriters again. x says he receives old typewriters needing repair from around the country. Demand is so great that early this year, the family moved to new office space. Other repair shops include Berkeley Typewriter and California Typewriter, both in Berkeley, California. They were also founded in the 1930s. Two recent documentaries have helped make typewriters popular among young people. They are The Typewriter in the 21st Century and California Typewriter. The American Writers' Museum in Chicago, Illinois has a popular area with seven manual typewriters and electronic typewriters that visitors can try out. x is the President of the Museum. It is showing typewriters used by famous writers, like Jack London, Ernest Hemingway and x. It even has one from singer, John Lenin. Typing, for the first time, is exciting, especially for younger people, x said. With pencils or other writing instruments, you can distract yourself by doodling, and of course on a computer, it's easy to find distractions. But a typewriter was invented specifically for writing. There are no distractions. It's just you and the piece water, he added. x is a senior curator in contemporary design at the x Design Museum in New York. Her Museum has many typewriters in its collection. x explained that working on a typewriter gives a satisfying sound, a feeling of authentic authorship. No one can spy on you, and there are no distractions. She noted that the lasting influence of typewriters can be seen in the look of keyboards on smartphones and personal computers. x said: We are still stuck with the keyboard, even on phones, which were supposedly designed to prevent keys from sticking together when someone is typing quickly.

I'm x.
