I hope that you've had a most lovely start to the week! It's the September school holidays this week, and what better way to spend a relaxing evening than to update my blog, yippee! B
As promised, I would be sharing more about a very special typewriter in m collection - insofar that its the ONLY non-manual machine in the whole of my modest collection!
*I apologise in advance that I've mostly relied on photos of typecasts which I'd done up almost 3 years ago, and that they are riddled with errors (some which I've only just spotted!) here and that :)

I think that it probably doesn't come as a surprise that the main reason I acquired one was the ability to switch out the adorable little 'golfballs' for different typefaces! What a variety that are available :) I am also completely fascinated by now that little type element tilts, spins and bounces off the paper at incredible speeds!
I remember the eager anticipation as I awaited for my first (yes, there was to be more!) set of elements to arrive...
|A nice little set to begin with!|
I soon started to try out each 'golfball' I could get my hands on... The machines types so beautifully with the little hum of the motor...
These were several typecasts I did up when I got my machine, which must have been around 2 years ago or so! (Apologies that they are in random order.)

|Calligraphy type element|
|Headline type element - this one's pretty neat!|
|Olde English type element|
|Olde World type element|
|Sunshine Script - I LOVE this type element very much!|
|The Oriental type element took me the longest to find - |
it is such an intriguing typeface for sure!

|Nice little collection!|

I hope you found this post enjoyable! :)
Thanks for reading and do have a wonderful week!
