Novice typewriter enthusiast. Not allowed to "collect" them but what is a "collection"? LOL. I will try to keep it to 5 at a time or less. My first experience with a typewriter was with my grandma and her letting me type away on hers for hours without a single complaint (she was an angel). My love for vintage fountain pens, my favourite grandma and an appreciation for practical antiques/art has brought me here.
