Hi I’m planing to display all my machines 1 by 1 at Words Studio in 民生社區, a few blocks across the Taipei Songshan Airport. Full address as here.
The plan is to showcase 2 of my machines within two weeks but I’ll keep swapping one machine each week. It is still at very begging stage and may change course any time. Currently I have my folding Corona #3 there.
It is a great honor that the owner of Words Studio, who is also a keen collector in many areas, put full trust on me and I got the chance to fix some of his machines. His studio is gift card focused but he also showcases heaps of dip pens, stationaries, antique pencil sharpeners and of course, typewriters. He shows tremendous support in promoting typewriters and he has already held a few experiences courses before.
It is my theory that typewriters shouldn’t be locked in a museum glass cabinet. Like vintage cars, these machine get worse just sitting there showing former glory. As my collection grows but I only got two hands, I’m more than happy any beginners/enthusiast to type anything on my machines. All my machines displayed there are welcome to use, but please respect the owner’s collection and ask if you wanna try his machines, every collector has it’s own rules.
