Rand's penmanship

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

If this is in the wrong section, feel free to move it, but I didn't know where else it might fit.

I'm fascinated by Ayn Rand's penmanship. I'm not sure why hers in particular (It's probably because she's an idol of mine), but I've always been interested in penmanship in general as well.

A couple questions:

1. Aside from the manuscript included in Anthem (which is small and some of the markup comments are difficult to read), where can I find samples of Rand's writing?

 

2. What kind of pen, paper, and typewriter did Rand use?

Sometimes items come up for sale. Here's one link, not sure how long it will stay up.

Any way that won't put me out thousands? I want to research, not collect.

Her manuscripts are viewable at the Library of Congress, but alas I don't live in DC either.

Try writing to ARI with those questions.
