Writing, even today, is still no easy task. But think about these great names – Twain, Hemingway, Angelou, Williams – they didn’t had the aid of the soft keys of a computer or laptop. Instead, they had the mighty and reliable machine that was the typewriter.

Ever since its invention, it has definitely made a huge mark for mankind. Suddenly, people from all walks of life who could afford it were typing left and right. Businesses boomed, researchers were happy, and writers could finally produce more masterpieces. Imagine an author or poet, alone in a room, nothing but the loud ticks of the keys being punched one by one into the dead of night.

Let’s pay homage to this highly versatile piece of equipment that helped to launch careers and rewrite history. Here are the best typewriter fonts that are just as beautiful as they are practical.
