You know, we could actually buy it.

The only thing worth buying in the whole world, that is. The Typewriter. *The* Typewriter. Douglas Adams' typewriter is up for sale - astonishingly enough, from a vendor called NV Books who apparantly are based in Great Wolford, Warwickshire. Rob lives about 3/4 mile from there in the next village along, called Little Wolford. He could walk to pick it up - save all that costly shipping. It's on sale for $25,257.94. And I have that much money in our bank account. Sure, it *should* be spent on printer bills and retailer promotional invoices and, oh, whatever other fripperies a publisher spends money on. But we could ignore those bills and buy this instead. I think we should do it. The printers are decent chaps - they won't mind.


The SnowBlog is one of the oldest publishing blogs, started in 2003, and it's been through various content management systems over the years. A 2005 techno-blunder meant we lost the early years, but the archives you're reading now go all the way back to 2005.

Many of the older posts in our blog archive suffer from link rot. Apologies if you see missing links and images: let us know if you'd like us to find any in particular.
