I didn't knew I needed one


And suddenly I had bought a typewriter. I always wished for one when I was young, it took a while to get one. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it. It is totally different from using a keyboard, it is physical -you have to press the keys really hard. I like it. If it is anything you need to know about typewriters go to the Uppercase blog. Talking about Uppercase blog, I found a link to Grace Partridge's parking passes there.


Thank you Drömma Lotta for writing so nice about me :) Lotta has a beautiful shop here in Gothenburg, Haga. Unfortunately, for most of you, she's only writing in swedish, she writes wonderfully poetic and I have a feeling she is a superromantic and passionat woman + she is in love, you can only imaging.

Härlig. Och med å, ä och ö på det gamla hederliga stället. Nu kommer maskinskrivningslektionerna till nytta. Bara stenografin kvar... :)

Vilken fin!
Men jag kommer att tänka på när jag själv fick en av min Svärfar (fast en mycket äldre modell). Glad i hågen satte jag den på paket hållaren och cyklade iväg...tyvärr föll den av och sen var det bara mos...Tänk, den hade hållit så länge och nu hade jag haft den i 10 minuter...Synd...jag tänker på den ibland...

Welcome to the past century, Camilla!

Typewriting machines are enigmatic. The energy in your brian must be send to your fingers to see what your are thinking.

Yours is beautiful.

You make us live a perfect living through your blog. Thanks.

Oh, you sweet thing :0)

Yes I am in love indeed, and passionat about your work as well.

Have a great week and thanx again!!
Drömma Lotta

Funny that I see your post because I just read Amy Karol (angrychicken's blog) got one as well. It just happens that Sophia (my 9 year old) is very fond of old typewriters and has been typing her stories in one of them. She is not interested in printing them from a computer. You can see her latest project here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/robertogreco/2613616333/

It looks to me like they are coming back just like the good old stuff.

That is a very pretty typewriter! I love the colors. Now you can explore all of the different kinds of correction stuff. My favorite is the correction tape that comes in a little clear plastic pod with gears inside. It is much smoother than the old "white out" or "liquid paper" that makes blobs!

vad trevligt med original instrutionerna med skrivmaskinen!

You never know you need one until you have one... They are life changing.. really...

olechko said...

Funny remake of your latest piece in the "it wasn't me. " project

Mary-Laure said...

I've been wanting to buy one for some time, too!

Mjke said...

Vilken underbar! =) Åh..

sarajo f said...

i have an old underwood from my grandfather--it is a beautiful object.
The calendar looks so wonderful!
and many thanks for your english words on my post...they were most lover-ly (I can't even begin to imagine my swedish)!

Angela said...

The sound of typing is like music. I really, really miss having a typewriter.

The Lil Bee said...

SO cool!

Alisa said...

My great grandmother left me one, but I need ribbon..

:(

I like the colors of yours!

Joanna Goddard said...

lovely. lovely.

louise said...

Lovely, they seem so much more romantic than a computer keyboard.

mansuetude said...

this "desire" from when you were little (your little fingers)... why doesn't it surprise me one bit?

its great that you have the old literature with it, too. I have an old old Remington... its like a black train.

Tuula said...

Jag hade glömt bort att jag har en skrivmaskin! Den är just nu "i en galax långt borta" = det proppfulla källarförrådet...
