welcome to TYPE B: a selection of typewriters curated by Donna Brady. I've been collecting, refurbishing and selling typewriters in person at the Brooklyn Flea (formerly of Brady & Kowalski) for the past few years. In that short time I have refurbished and found homes for A LOT of typewriters, thus gaining an intimate perspective on the makes and models from the various era's. My current offerings represent the best machines ever made, along with some rarities. My clients include: collectors, artists, designers, writers, enthusiasts, stylists, prop masters and first time buyers of all ages. Whether you are looking for a solid manual typewriter for your correspondent needs or simply a classic machine for display, I can help you find the right one for your style and needs. Please feel free to get in touch if you are looking for something particular.

onionskin typewriter paper
onionskin paper has a feel and sound unlike normal copy paper. it's a thin, light-weight, strong, often translucent paper. it's ideal for use in a typewriter, and it's also lovely to draw on.
