|My pink SF was a 2012 Christmas gift!|
Typed on pink Olympia SF De Luxe as pictured on the right...
Firstly, thank you for all the support and for accompanying me as I take baby steps into the world of blogging! This is all so new to me, so your kind words mean so much - heartfelt gratitude :)
As promised, here is part two 'showcasing' my sheer obsession with collecting as many typewriter typefaces as I can...
|First typed sample I received from Rob!|
|Beautiful duo-tone beige Royal Portable|
One of my most exciting acquisitions happened in 2012 (how time has flown!), when I was able to acquire a beautiful Royal Portable from Robert which featured an Italics typeface and pharmaceutical keys - very neat! Upon finding out who he was, I unabashedly asked if I could have his autograph, hee hee... There are so many Typospherians I look up to, I should start collecting typewritten notes and letters too :)
|Coloured ribbons are pretty fun!|
Please excuse the stained fingers, oops...
|Continental's Schräge Zierschrift (Oblique Italics) typeface.|
I LOVE the beautiful swashes on this one - especially on the upper case!
|Maroon Continental Wanderer|
Sans Serif Typefaces...
Beautiful Royal Signet (another lovely acquisition, this time from Alan Seaver!) It came
with one missing spool cover, but I was later able to acquire one from a parts machine...
|Gold plated Royal Quiet De Luxe - gorgeous <3|
|The Vogue typeface was an unexpected surprise!|
|Remie Scout Model Art Gothic typeface which strictly|
speaking is a 'mixed' variant, but mostly sans serif...
|Remie Scout Model - with pop-up type bars ;)|
I think that would be all for today's post, and I look forward to the next entry... (I welcome suggestions on what you may like me to feature in the upcoming posts, that would be most helpful!) A few hours have already gone by - mostly from editing the layout and selecting photos from an uncategorised (and oh-so-disorganised!) album comprising over 2000 photos - yikes!
I wish you a most lovely weekend, and thanks once again for reading :)
