Wow, what a cool birthday gift from the awesome boyfriend! He's got a blue IBM 60 so now we sort of have matching typewriters. As of May 23, some cleaning and maintenance needs to be done, and correcting ribbon has yet to be procured.

Out of the blue in the summer of 2020, I really wanted a typewriter again, so after some online research and browsing, two Brother machines landed on my doorstep. A pastel blue 1971 Montgomery Ward's Signature 511D and a creamy 1985 Sears ultraportable both ignited a fire I haven't felt in a long time. I quickly found Ted Munk, the Facebook groups, and the rest of the typewriter online community, where I learned how to fix them and appreciate them. By summer's end I had collected 20 typewriters to cure my 2020 pandemic blues. Now I'm obsessed about all the different styles, every aspect of the mechanics, and their important history. Typewriters are an endless source of fascination as a literary medium, for creativity, a tinker-fest for machine geeks, and still contribute to the economy. I truly enjoy learning how to bring mid-century or later typewriters back to life, even the electric ones, while completely in awe of the unique antiques that folks brilliantly restore. It warms my heart that there are others, and here we are sharing the same passions about typewriters together.
