My Valiant Brother

SKETCH005

No. 2 in a series of watercolour sketches.

Despite their being cheap and plentiful, these original Brother typewriters are still good value. I bought this ‘Valiant’ recently, simply for the name plate. They seem to have made endless versions of the same basic machine for reasons that escape me. I guess they were using scientific marketing to sell the same thing under different guise. Wasn’t it enough that it was cheap and well made?

  1. Nice watercolour. I have one too (Brother Valiant I mean)

  2. This is quite wonderful, with a style that befits a deceptively “simpler” time. I hope you continue with these watercolor sketches. I find myself wondering what some of the stand-out typewriters (such as a Hermes 3K) or perhaps those of unusual configuration (on, say, typewriterdatabase.com) might inspire you to produce.

  3. (Oops, I forgot to check the “Notify me of follow-up comments via email” box on the prior post.)
