Typewritten Poetry

"Give me three words, and I'll write it into a poem."

Our founder and resident poet, Adam, typewrites you a custom poem on a vintage Corona, in an envelope adorned with a wax seal. It is a perfect gift for yourself or someone you cherish.

A collection of his poems inspired by strangers (titled Finders & Keepers) was published and is available in our online store & bookstores across Singapore.

Every customised poem Adam writes is uniquely yours to call your own.
