A work in progress. I love the Vogue typeface, but the body paint is in very poor shape. The characters, lovely as they are, don't make even or clear impressions. Could it be that the granite-like hardness of the platten has something to do with that?
I'm thinking of repainting the body. I've even already picked out a couple of cans of robin's egg blue, thinking for some unexplainable reason it would go with the art deco type face.
But in addition, and also for no good basis, i don't feel right about customizing.
So faced with all that indecision it lives a sort of semi-outcast life up here in the exalted world of the daily typers, as opposed to the derelicts that slumber in the dark, Abu Ghraib corners of the workshop

Almost at the same instant that the idea occurred to me of how much fun it might be for my children (7) and grandchildren (13) to get letters - real letters in the mail - i went digging through the dusty nether regions of our storage area to pull out my beloved 1957 Olympia SM3 Portable and the old Royal 10 I'd rescued from a neighbor's garbage can in the 1960's. Refurbishing them triggered a typewriter obsession. Don't tell my wife, but i believe there are now about 20 of them.
I love their looks, their intricate and precise mechanisms, and dinking around in the workshop tuning them up and bringing them back to life. i also, unfortunately, love the thrill of the hunt on eBay. But all of them are put to use for correspondence and my new hobby of decorated art letters. And sometimes they even inspire a bit of poetry.
