It’s beautiful. I think I need to seek out a typewriter myself. 🙂
I have two typewriters. The one is an antique Remington portable, one of the first they made, that used to be my gran’s. It works perfectly (after I fixed the spring on the slider), but sadly I cannot find any ribbons that will fit it.
The other, I can’t recall its name right now and it’s in storage so I can’t check, has a stripped gear somewhere inside causing it to jump several spaces when I press certain keys, and typewriter repairmen are in short supply these days (I’d take it apart myself, but that operation would probably become an autopsy instead).
My search continues for my own Fred.
P.S. The typewriter medium works remarkably well on a blog.
I love everything about this. I hope to find my own perfect typewriter some day.
