a place for zinesters - writers and readers
I've finally got a typewriter! My dear husband and daughter decided, that as it was my birthday, they'd buy me the very old Imperial typewriter I'd seen in a charity shop. Left to myself, I think I would have rather gone for a German typewriter on ebay in better shape. But never mind, it was a lovely thought and now I have this typewriter.
But, it is rather old and I don't know how to look after it or get it into working order. It's a huge thing and weighs a ton and a half! From what I've read on the 'net, it was probably made any time between the 1930's and 1950's. All advice gratefully accepted! I'm hoping to use it for my next zine.
