Meet Some Twittery Typewriters: Typewriter Week, Entry #3
In honour of International Typewriter Appreciation Month and my newest acquisition (below),
welcome to Typewriter Week on TwitchyCorner.
I’ve asked some Twitter friends to help me out for this post today. My thanks go to them.
In case you somehow managed to miss her, here she is. Please meet: Miss Red Dora.
Thanks to Anna Spargo-Ryan (@annaspargoryan) for this. A colourful and interesting typewriter befitting of its bright and witty owner.
JUST IN This gorgeous shot from Naomi (@naomi_bulger): "This one belonged to my grandmother. I also used it for inspiration while writing letters for my book Airmail. Here it is with a birthday message in it from a garden party I threw for a friend last year." ADORABLE.
Leenie was kind enough to share this shot of her mother's typewriter, which she used in Year 11, but had to write in all the a's, because the key didn't work. You gotta love an antique.
Cate (@keepcatebusy) spied these in an Opportunity (Thrift) Shop. Though she didn't take one home, she must've been considering a purchase for at least a minute. I'm drooling over the Parker style cabinet they sit on.
This was my first attempt at making up an exclamation mark by use of a . then backspacing with to add a ' - how dare they leave it off the keys?
Late entry: Bern's (@bern_Morley) husband kindly bought this for her after she said: I reckon I'd write more on a typewriter. I've never touched it. Could this be the week to get thinking about it again?
I once stumbled upon a lovely post Eden (@edenland) wrote about her husband Dave surprising her with the gift of a typewriter. Despite keying everything I could think of into the Google machine, I couldn't find it, so the here's next best thing. How cool is that? (With thanks, and owner's permission.)
