    1. I actually used my old room for typewriters, music etc... and my sister's one for sleeping because now she's gonna go out of home soon to live with her boyfriend.

  2. Equally congratulations!! And the Selectric typeface looks great, makes we want to shoot with one of my (two) Selectrics, they seem to have minor-major problems however. it seems that the more sophisticated a system is, the more it is prone to error and malfunction. i never had a problem with a 1930s Erika, but practically all Selectrics I have touched didn't work correctly.

    1. Yes, very complex mechanisms and it's all mechanical (with the exception of the electric motor) and for me this is a very fascinating thing :)

  3. Andrea, postman is a cool job! And I think it fits a Typospherian nicely. Photos of the room, please!

    1. If the weather is good the postman is happy, if the weather is bad... not that much :)
      We'll see... however I'm looking for a new job so when the postman contract will end I'll start another job immediately, I hope!
