Brisbane Type-in- THIS SUNDAY!

Roll up, roll up, to the biggest event on every Australian typewriter collector's calendar- the annual Brisbane Type-in!! This year is shaping up to be even better than last year's. Come and immerse yourself in the friendly clatter and ping of typeslugs in an idyllic outdoor setting under the Story Bridge. In order to set the mood, we are in the process of constructing giant 40ft high paper mache scale models of various typewriters to be perched upon and hung from the bridge, pending council approval. Even more exciting, we have just visited the hardware store and bought a quantity of plywood sufficient to construct a portable cat-walk such that former English cricketing legend Geoff Boycott can showcase his fashionable new line of stovepipe trousers as part of the type-in half-time entertainment- his only Australian appearance.

You'd be mad to miss it. Bring a typewriter (or three), bring a comfy chair and enjoy a morning of typewriter goodness in the company of some wonderful (and some wonderfully knowledgeable) like-minded souls.

11:00am this Sunday 9th of March in Captain Burke Park. Be there.


  1. You sell it well. I'm tempted. I hope you have a great day and I hope the wind doesn't catch those paper typers and make a flotilla out of them.

    1. Me too! I hope nobody will call Ghostbusters... ;)

  3. I thought Boycs WAS made of plywood!

  4. Boycs will at least give us a good idea of the wicket weren't batting on.
