For those who prefer their tech a little more retro with pinch of kitsch, take a gander at the delights created by Claire La Secretaire.
Each unique typewriter is reclaimed, reconditioned and embellished by hand with quirky designs and illustrations, creating something new and beautiful. They can customise something to your own specifications and have coloured typewriter ribbons available if you fancy penning your memoirs in something a little more special than the usual black ink.
Claire La Secretaire typewriters start from £200. See the website for more details.
