Moist January by Rik Hartley-Zels
To hell with Dry January - this strongly worded cocktail book gives you a different cocktail recipe to try out each day for a month! I did Moist January last year and amassed an impressive collection of booze. I didn't achieve much else though...

Chivalrotten by Angélique Mosely

Nebula by Amy Matthews
Local Comedian Amy put together this surreal zine over lockdown about an alternative world accessed through a womhole under her sink where lives, amongst a whole host of peculiar characters, a hermit crab in a Sports Direct mug. We're a bit worried about Amy actually...

Postcards by Pam Thorburn Art
Apparently I was on shift when Pam turned up and sat in one of our armchairs for a while doing this sketch of the shop display table just for fun. First thing I knew of it was seeing it on insta! We reached out to Pam about reproducing it as this charming postcard, which has a real energy and vibrancy that we like to think captures the spirit of the shop!
"I was at this random event across town the other night and there was this guy there with a Typewronger Badge on his lapel. He clocked I had my Typewronger Tote. When you know you know."
The Misadventures of John Nicholson by Robert Louis Stevenson with Illustrations by Joanna Robson
A murder, a mugging on Calton Hill, an illegal drinking establishment... at Christmas! This lost Stevenson farce was published for the first time as an individual volume right back at the start of the shop in 2018. We comissioned 5 gorgeous illustrations from the supremely talented Joanna Robson, who also designed out bookmark!
Typewronger Deluxe Tote
Our Deluxe Tote Bags are extra large to fit all your
wine books! Printed both sides in red and black using eco friendly inks on organic cotton, one side has our name and stamp and the other our favourite quotation from Hilaire Belloc:
And is it true? It is not true!
And if it was it wouldn't do
For people such as me and you,
Who very nearly all day long
Are doing something rather wrong.
Leith Walk Police Box / Typewronger Tote
Typewronger first started trading on 5/11/17 from the Leith Walk Police Box. We go back every Bonfire Night to celebrate one of the shop's two official birthdays, and a couple of years ago we had these totes made with the police box on one side and the shop stamp blown up big on the other! The LWPB is a pop-up venue where you can try out a new business idea, and if it wasn't for them I'm sure we'd never have got the momentum going to run the shop full time!
