What a great piece. I'm going to try and find the magazine at our local newsagent. I also saw your online contribution to the Smith Journal after they featured typewriters on their cover several issues ago.

Eventually, I'm going to have to start calling you 'My famous friend, Rob Messenger'.

I'm going to keep an eye out for a print version of this magazine.

That is awesome! Congratulations Rob! :D

Will have to get a copy for myself too - hopefully they'll be available in the Top End :)

Congratulations! You have some really beautiful machines there. Even the plastic-bodied examples are eye-catching, being so clean and eager to be used.

That green Valentine looks particularly... '70s funky!

I love the subtitle: "A Type of Hysteria" - I've had the illness only since the beginning of this year, but that certainly nails it. I love the lime green Valentine - thought they were all red. A great magazine piece. Hope you got everything put away after the photo before it rained or something. A lovely sample of your collection.

That's a nice glamorous piece! They took some beautiful pictures. But one question remains, how the *** do you select typewriters for a one time story when you have that many?
