COMING SOON: We are currently working on a new website, where members will have full acces to the archive and will find other benefits.

ETCetera is a full-color journal of historical typewriter topics, published quarterly, with German and Spanish translations.

The mission of the Early Typewriter Collectors’ Association is to support communication and interaction within the community of typewriter lovers and collectors, and to encourage its growth. Our magazine, ETCetera, serves that mission by gathering and sharing knowledge about typewriter history with the community and beyond!
