Typewriters in alternate history

The Amazon series The Man in the High Castle, about America under Axis rule, includes lots of typewriters deployed by totalitarian bureaucrats. In this scene, secretaries are at work in the offices of the Japanese authority in San Francisco. Spotted in other scenes: Royal FP and IBM Selectric.

I think it's in _Gravity's Rainbow_ where there's something about typewriters killing more people than bombs do.
