Meet the New Baby

I just won a vintage Webster XL-747 Automatic Repeat Spacer Typewriter from an auction.

I’ve had my eye out for a manual typewriter since I watched A Place of Truth about traveling poet Abi Motts.

I’ll be using it in the next few weeks as a prop (I’m being painted!), but I also look forward to using it for performance poetry.

Looking forward to a package in the mail soon!
