Young Novelist at the Keys

Spotted on Canada.com:

Young mystery writer shuns technology while plying craft

Plante said he first started collecting typewriters when trying to think of a project to do with a visiting aunt who would soon be leaving. As he enjoyed doing restorations he suggested they fix up an old typewriter.
[...]
Plante recognizes it's time to begin gradually refining his typewriter collection. He said he will soon weed out the ones he doesn't like and focus on specialty items: continentals, or maybe typewriters from Russia. 
 Future Typospherian and Brigade member perhaps? Somebody alert the Nano Rhino!

Great article. It is good to see more young people using typewriters and especially a writer.

I am impressed at the size of his collection - assuming he still lives at home, his parents must be very accommodating to house them all!

It is to be hoped that he manages to build on the collection: it sounds like he treasures them.
