type tuesday: ribbons

When I spotted this box of typewriter tins at a flea market in Seattle whilst visiting Tif (aka dottie angel), I had to play it cool in order to get a fair price from the seller. Look what was inside!

It was about five or six years ago that this particular ribbon tin design ignited my typewriter ephemera obsession. Before coming across it on eBay (and of course bidding to win it), I wasn't aware of the amazing artifacts of promotion and packaging associated with typewriters. It was my lucky day to score an nearly complete box of my favourite tin!

One of these Type Bar typewriter ribbon tins could be yours as part of "The Royal" level of support for The Typewriter project.
