LEFT-HANDED F. SCOTT FITZGERALD (Wrong!)

I enjoy collecting photos (at least jpgs) of authors sitting at typewriters. While I couldn’t find a photo of F. Scott Fitzgerald at a typewriter, I did find several shots of him writing with pen and paper. In some cases, someone had “flipped”  the photo so that Fitzgerald appears to be left-handed. I have several relatives who were changed from lefties to righties — and, from what I’ve heard, the process leaves lasting scars. All of you cavalier graphic designers out there, do not make this decision lightly.
