- OK, here’s the revised poster with complete info….
- – And here’s a pdf file to print out and stick up in cafes, thrift stores and English Departments! (And book stores, firehouses, typewriter repair shops, etc.)
PLEASE, RSVP via Comments, and let us know where you’re coming from, what typewriter(s) you are bringing and if any of them are for the swap. Me for example: Michael McGettigan–Philadelphia. Olivetti Lettera 32, Olympia SF to swap.
Thanks and hope to see lots of machines, and the people who love them on the 21st.
NYC Type-IN Sun., April 21st

Drinking and Typing at America's Oldest Press Club
Sometimes beer is a muse, sometimes it’s just a beverage. On April 27th, find out at an evening of typing fueled by craft brews from the U.S., Italy and Germany–with typewriters from those same countries. We’ll also have a great beer-tasting, hosting the the Philadelphia Daily News’ Beer Reporter, Joe Sixpack. $15 covers the tasting and some tasty snacks–bring a working manual typewriter and it’s just $10. (we’ll provide nice stationery, stamped envelopes and a copy of “The Writer’s Sidekick” — a hard-boiled thesaurus cooked up behind prison walls!)
Okay, a nice story in the New York Times right now about the rebooting of typewriters…
Makes typing sound visionary, yet normal.
I’d better go down and type something!
