More BEA shots

This ginormous typewriter is from the Abrams BEA booth. If anyone was going to have one--well, it makes sense for this press. They have beautiful books, a beautiful, skylit office, and parties with--yes--beautiful cheeses. 

I didn't check if it did anything--that is, if it had sound effects or interactive features--but it may have. This was taken during the final, 4:40, "everyone's packing up and giving everything away for free" rush, so I didn't have much time to ask questions or play with giant keys. 

I seem to remember seeing this last year, too--but that was before I thought camera phones, and smart phones in general, were a good thing.

Can you imagine the interns lifting trying to lift this up and tie it up on top of a cab to get it back to the office? Surely there's a better way, but I imagine that'd look something like this:

Typewriter + Tom Hanks + mall = Big 2

Ha, ha. Your graphic was hilarious. That typewriter is pretty awesome.

Interns there should be forced to memorize and perform a dance routine on top of the typewriter.

It should be done to Carol of the Bells and and their foot placements must eventually yield the entire text of Elements of Style.

Colin,
I completely agree. Now, if only that could end up on YouTube...
