Stills from a movie, Day 37

I’m making things, not really typing, not really writing. This is from a photo we took of our shadows on a night walk last summer. Now the longest we’ve been apart since we got together and every day from now on until lockdown is over.

Thinking of you all. Keep on staying safe xx

Street finds

Picked up on the streets of London
Picked up on the streets of St Leonard’s

I hated the plastic body of the Lettera 82 so much I decided to leave the machine naked. The plastic body is a disgrace to the name of Lettera , and what’s more it took two of us to get it off, and once off, seemed too much hassle for too much ugly to bother getting sweaty over.

Yuck

Season’s Greetings

Do not adjust your TV sets! I love the red and green ribbon on my Imperial Good Companion no 5 with the scientific symbols. Recently I had to sell my one and only script typeface, so I’m enjoying using this typewriter even more this festive season. When something has to go, it has to go, but I’m still rich in typewriters and the possibilities are infinite. May your festive season be glorious. Wishing you all peace, creativity, and tranquility for 2020.

Your phone dies, you can’t charge it, and you need to call your loved ones on someone else’s phone, do you know their numbers? Do your loved ones have your number?

Problem solved, old ways are best.
