New acquisition

Moth Woman Press are looking forward to producing our first zines in the near future, and true to this ambition, have just acquired this fine Brother portable typewriter from Lost and Found Market in Smith Street, Collingwood. Many thanks to Tom Tedesco of Angletons Office Supplies in Smith Street for his time, trouble, enthusiasm, encouragement and expertise. The first typewriter we acquired, a 1960s Royal, was more aesthetically pleasing, but had a number of serious faults. On Tom’s advice we returned it to Lost and Found (which fortunately is just up the road) and swapped it for the model pictured above. (Thank you to the friendly and obliging manager of Lost and Found too.) Angletons also sell typewriter ribbons, so now we really are ready to go. (Click on image to enlarge).
