Typewriters (1) : Brother Deluxe 1350

This new series will take a look at our growing typewriter collection.

The series has to start with the Brother Deluxe 1350, the first in the collection. This is a fine typewriter which would have been built in Japan in the early 1970s. Unlike most of the other typewriters in the collection, it had a fully enclosing case with zip, later typewriters tended to go for a plastic half cover with the bottom of the typewriter exposed. 

The typewriter works well and has some pleasing late 1960s design touches with a fake wood finish above the keys.
