Children nowadays don't know about typewriters. If it weren't for the picture book, Click, Clack, Moo: Cows That Type by Doreen Cronin [JP CRO], the typewriter would be a complete unknown. There is, however, a group from Boston that has found a use for old typewriters. This group is the Boston Typewriter Orchestra and they perform "music" on their old Remingtons! As you can imagine it is more percussion than anything else! That leads me to think about other ways to use old materials--maybe we can start the Nesmith Library clapping book and kazoo band!
