This is a photo I took of the manual that accompanied my typewriter. I’m flattered Uppercase Magazine blogged about it but I wish the link was correct.

This manual came with this typewriter.

Vintage pencil leads, as collected by A Collection a Day, 2010.
Collector and creator, Lisa Congdon, has collected quite a few other vintage office supplies and art tools so definitely inspect her whole collection. I do hope she publishes a book of her collection at the end of the year. I just love the composition of the photos.
justenoughsalt for giving a quick what’s-it for Instapaper:
it is that simple…you know you need it. *note: don’t forget to setup a password

I’ve heard lots of people mention how incredibly useful it is and that its become their lifeline for their online life, but I didn’t know exactly what Instapaper did. Ta da! Quite simple, indeed.
I’m thrilled to discover I am not the only personal who gets a little enthusiastic about quality tools. Ez from Creature Comforts waxed poetic about her love of the KUM pencil sharpener. I wholeheartedly agree that KUM makes THE BEST pencil sharpeners. The two-hole sharpener is great for both regular and colored pencils. A whole assortment of these sharpeners are available at your local art supply stores or online at Utrecht, or at Jet Pens. If you only use standard-sized pencils, I highly recommend the single-hole metal sharpener with spare blade.
