After our last bookbinding class, the teacher took us to The Regional Assembly of Text, a stationary store in Vancouver.
The store has a collection of old typewriters which they put to good use once a month, during the Letter Writing Club. During this free event, people are welcome to use the typewriters to write letters. Tea and cookies are served.
(They also have a zine reading room. This place is heaven!)
I asked if they sold typewriter ribbons and they did!
I took the ribbon home and quickly revived my Royal typewriter.
Do you own a typewriter? What model? Do you still use it?
