My typewriter addiction began when I was about 16 and convinced my mom to let me drag home a Corona #4 portable from an estate sale. It was black and shiny, and it had lots of moving parts. I was hooked, and typewriters have been coming and going from my life ever since. I currently have 18 a lot of them, and I’ll be posting pictures and information about them here.

A list of some typewriters currently in my collection:
