Finally got around doing some work on typewriters, and caught up to date with blogging.
The weather has been rather unforgiving, and I’m not quite sure this is a good time to fix and clean machines. Mmmmm.
Anyway, three typewriters has found its way to my place over the last week, and boy are they a mess… Another three of my machines are needing fixes and cleans – which hopefully finish up sooner then later, then I can blog about them :)
Wait, a nice package!
Wonder what’s in it….
It really is a beautiful machine.
She’s very clean and only needs a little bit of help for an alignment problem. (New problem.)
The type feel is even. There is no need for too much pressure to type, and the print is thin and delicate.
Dear Typosphere: Does anyone know the proper name for this font style?
It’ll be better then calling it the “loopy script” in any case.
A lot pinker then I thought she would be, and almost like a vermilion pink, but somewhat still a coral pink…
Ergo, the name Coraline!
(Also, a very cool movie. I might have to get a copy and watch it someday soon again.)
Bonus Prize: a beautifully written letter in a DIY envelope, ribbons, MARS postcard and oooh, tea!
I shall have some now.
(Dearest friend I owe you all the thanks in the world, and I know I’m over killing it with all the thankees but I shall try to fit as many as I can into the next correspondence :p)
Hope your year is getting good for typers – my poor shelf is full, again!
