This lovely Brother De Luxe (Serial No K9355498) is my first Japanese typewriter.

It reminds me of a Ford Anglia…

I know… not the first time an automobile- typewriter analogy has been made (or the last time). For a better example, see BMW of typewriters .

Certainly not the Ferrari of typewriters, but then I have about as much interest in driving a red Ferrari as I have in typing on an Olivetti Valentine.

I’ve never owned a Ford Anglia – not the real thing anyway – but I did once own a Dinky toy with the same pale blue paintwork as my Brother De Luxe.

Seems like I’ve reverted back to my childhood. 🙂
