My typewriter collection (shared with my partner) began with the Brother Activator 800T shown in my profile photo (acquired Feb. 2017), grew with the addition of an Olympia SM7 Deluxe (acquired May 2017), and grew again with the gift of a Corona Four (Dec. 2017). I'm loving reconnecting to my analog youth (child of the 60s).
