you turn into a dark alleyway, and feel along the bricks for a door. your hand closes around a cool brass doornob. you turn, and find that you have to crouch to enter. as you walk in, you see a circle of ornate antique chairs. flickering lanterns light the room rather poorly. on shelves are old radios — you spot a lineup of zeniths in need of repairs — film cameras, and typewriters. you have found the meeting place of the society of typewriter enthusiasts.
who are we
we are a gathering of peoples interested in typewriters. electric, manual, portable, anything else at all. we are united by our common love of the written word, of modes of recordkeeping older than you or i.
what do we do?
discuss typewriters, share images, find the typewriter for your needs, and much more. what do you seek to discuss, what typewriters do you aspire to one day own? need advice fixing up your typewriter, or are you looking for a good place to get a new ribbon? do you REALLY want to type in typewriter font?
must i be the proud parent of a typewriter machine in order to join the society? no! all you need is an appreciation for the machine, or an urge to parent one yourself, to join. and if you have no particular interest in typewriters or do not want to join the society, you may still swing by our meeting place to ask any questions you have about typewriters.
i'll add to this but i doubt anyone shall be confused.
me // Cloud
here i'll have images of the machines of our members. again, you don't need to have one to join, but this is a nice place for us to catalogue everyone's typewriters :) i'll link posts if you post the pics, or you can PM me and i'll post them straight to the board :D
My Typewriter (Cloud) — Webster XL-747, ~1971
Sophie's Typewriter — Brother, Majestic 612, early 1960s
this board will probably get some additions, as i don't know what y'all will want! tell me what typewriter-related things you'd want to discuss and what features the board should have.
