A few months ago, I joined a yahoo group called Greenock Freecycle where you can ‘recycle’ unwanted items instead of throwing them away and no money is exchanged.
I usually receive around 20 emails a day of people selling garden gnomes or electrical cables, but last week I came across an advert for an electrical typrewriter. I emailed back straight away and an hour later I was at a lovely woman called Christine’s house collecting my new toy.

I was surprised to find that it was in perfect working order and that there was still some ink left.
I decided to use it to write a long-overdue letter to Katie Haegele who sent me some of her found poems a while back. When I was taking the second photo the flash was far too bright. I put my finger over the flash to dull it down a bit and I quite like the way this looks.

    Woah, I’ve wanted a typewriter for so long. How exactly does an electronic one work?
