ICYMI, I have a super-occasional newsletter that covers everything I’ve been up to that, social media being what it is, there’s a good chance you missed.

I should have another instalment out later this week. Subscribe now and you won’t miss that either. jonathancrowe.net/newsletter/

This 1965 Facit TP2 needed a little work when it arrived last year. Jennifer fixed the the bell, margin stops and ribbon reverse; it also got new 3D-printed feet. It’s now about as good as we can get it. It’s also very blue. instagr.am/p/Cguoql9OVqW/

We’re making lasagna and the orange cat is awfully interested and that’s just too on the nose. instagr.am/p/CgcwPTCvJFv/

I bet you’ve been wondering what I thought about Peng Shepherd’s novel THE CARTOGRAPHERS. It’s a literary fantasy about maps! Is it even possible for a book to be more relevant to my interests? Wonder no longer: my review for @strangehorizons is now live. strangehorizons.com/non-fictio

Under the hood, this 1974 Smith-Corona Galaxie Twelve isn’t much different from a Smith-Corona from the 1950s, or even the 1930s. Maybe a little less robustly built thanks to cost-cutting, but still very good. instagr.am/p/CgNZbZtuR38/

Walter sleeps occasionally. (He’s more than a bit rambunctious, especially at 4 am.) instagr.am/p/CgHsXmLupyZ/

They play together a lot more than they snuggle together, but it’s easier to get a shot of them when they’re not scampering. instagr.am/p/Cf7PVxWuU9w/

A 1958 Smith-Corona Silent-Super in Alpine Blue. A looker, to be sure. Whatever the colour, it’s hard to beat a fifties-era Smith-Corona in good condition. instagr.am/p/Cf4cM0FOzgD/
