Royal 890, circa 1967

I am in blood

Stepped in so far that, should I wade no more,

Returning were as tedious as go o’er.

--Macbeth, III.iv.139–41

 Oooh this is a sinister moment. Lady Macbeth, questioning Macbeth’s suspicion of Macduff (the play’s hero), suggests to her husband that maybe he’s acting just a little needlessly paranoid. This quote is his response. Strap in, kids: bloodlust ensues.

What could be more 60’s than a white typewriter with black keys? I chose this Royal because it was manufactured smack in the middle of the Vietnam War, a year when the reasons to keep wading through blood made about as much sense as Macbeth does in this quote.
