Steven Soboroff has picked up an interesting addition to the typewriter collection we have mentioned here from time to time. It is a Perkins Brailler that was used by the Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli. He was blinded at age 12.
The new piece is being shipped from Italy and will make its first appearance along with more than a dozen other Soboroff typewriters at an exhibition in Boston next month. The collection now includes 22 notable machines.
