A blog by Vikram Shah about pencils, typewriters, and other(non)related interests.
Good for you, we have to make the world safe for typewriters again ... that is a great red color, did you paint the machine?
What a great way to let others know typewriters are still alive and well. I love the color of your typewriter.
Thanks! I actually got the typewriter just like this -- ready-painted in this awesome color. At the time (July 16, 2011) I was at a flea market in Germany, and this one stuck out amongst the other grey and black typewriters there. Since I had weight concerns, I only bought this one, and it was a steal at about 10 bucks. :)
Well done Vikram, keep it up! These were the Brother portables supplied by Brother for the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games. The Main Media Centre was a sea of them, you can imagine the sight!
So my typewriter is actually a special edition from 1988?
Love the Swiss t-shirt! Matches the bright red typewriter, too :)
