I realised I haven’t got myself a wish list.
I should do something about it.
I can’t really think of any (three) right now – I’m quite happy with my collection, and I’m even wanting to cut down what I have… I’m to the point I really just want to have what I need to type, the rest is going up to my Etsy. I still do want to refurbish a couple, but I just haven’t had the motivation for it just yet.
I think it’s because my Baby is *still* lost in the mail. SIGH.
(Disney movies yesterday still lingering in my head)
I do want to add a noiseless glass keyed model to my collection, maybe a Smith Corona Silent?
Well right now I really really want this:
Alligator Red 1920’s Royal Portable.
I’m loving the fonts the most. All my design career I’ve always fallen back to the Century Gothic all this time, and now there’s a typewriter with a more awesome version of it?
I gotta have it.
Everyone in they typosphere seems to have the same super awesome taste, so my chances of finding this is really slim.
I’ve never seen a red Royal on eBay Aust, and the chances of the Vogue font in Australia is like finding polar bears in Darwin.
THERE ARE NONE.
But, I might be wrong.
I hope I’m really really really wrong about that fact.
