This May 11, 2011 UK Guardian features photos of 18 authors with their typewriters. The article ran as the era of the typewriter was coming to a close. The photos features Agatha Christie with towers of her own novels. Interesting fact: Mark Twain was the first author to submit a typewritten manuscript to a publisher -- Life on the Mississippi in 1883.
