Vintage Typewriter Tins Make You Hate Your Computer

Janine Vangool has always been fascinated with typewriters and typewriter ephemera, which inspired her to start a colorful collection of vintage typewriter tins. (Ribbons were packaged this way until around the 1960s.) The various images and typography used on these rounded beauties showcases the history of the typewriter, but also a history of design and advertising dating back to the early 1900s. While the tins inspire nostalgia for inky keys and a time when people had to carefully consider their choice of words before they let their fingers do the talking, they also exist as stunning little works of art all on their own. Click through to check out some of the tins in this great collection.
