Link: Katharine Susannah Prichard’s typewriter

I had a pleasant surprise finding a blog post – with photographs – of Prichard’s typewriter, currently being restored by Robert Messenger of Oz Typewriter. He has posted an overview of her life and work too. Robert’s enthusiasm for typewriters is rather infectious; I’m glad to see people caring for and celebrating this aspect of the past. I doubt there’ll be photos of Tim Winton or Peter Carey’s restored laptops in a century.
