Yay! Guess who just listed eight TypeKey Hairpins to her Etsy store?
That's right--this girl!
EDIT:I got them listed just in time, too--February is apparently International Typewriter Appreciation Month. Who knew? :)
In the Landus Fantasticus, almost all writing is done by hand. That is why good handwriting is highly prized, and much emphasis is placed on learning good penmanship. Professional calligraphers and scribes are always in high demand.
However, there have been a few imports from the Land Beyond the Sea... and one of these imports was a typewriter. This particular contraption is now in the possession of the High King, located in the Royal Library at the Noble Court. It is being studied (and utilized) by the Head Librarian.
These hairpins boast charms that resemble number keys, much like those found on that imported typewriter. Indeed, these accessories look like they could adorn the hair of one of the librarians—a small tribute to writing, and the many forms that it takes.

(Many, many thanks to my best friend for letting me take pictures of the back of her head.)
