Typewritten index card in blue elite type which reads: The Brutalism of Shipping Typewriters I can understand that no everyone could find a carriage lock mechanism on a typewriter, presuming a particular model had one. But it seems inexcusable for someone not to realize that typewriter cases have methods for locking the typewriter into the case. Today I got an immaculately packaged and bubblewrapped Royal typewriter, but only wrapped to protect the case and not the actual typewriter. They shoved it in the case with a single sheet of bubblewrap as if that was going to protect it from being dropkicked from one side of the country to the other. The typewriter just wattled around inside freely. Weren't they concerned with the interior rattling when they wrapped 8 layers of bubblewrap around the case!?!
