So much for modern technology. The Mac is great for the on-screen stuff, and printing, and efficiency, and all that. But like anything with character and soul it has to be hand done, with flaws and smudges and wobbly bits. And that’s the difference between a typewriter, and a PC and printer.

Here we have a Maritsa 30, made in Plovdiv, Bulgaria in the 1970s, possibly a copy of a Japanese Silver-Seiko design. Everything seems to be in working order, so soon words of wisdom will be flowing through the keys again. I doubt I shall produce reams of literature on the Maritsa, but it will certainly be great for journalling with the mixed media projects.

For more information the Oz Typewriter blog seems a good place to start.
