type-in prep

this one belongs to the Library

  1. Coolest display ever. You are clearly the fanciest pants in the Typosphere. Very impressive.

  2. Those are some great looking machines and what a display! I hope all goes well this weekend.

  3. Hey, be great to wander among them, with a glass of wine, dropping little comments about "Oh, I find the SM9 just so common, yet somehow that simple strength of line is appealing... you can see how it influenced SCM, but they were never able to articulate their shell the same way--don't you agree?"

  4. Thanks for the compliments, but I can't take too much credit for it. David at the Library wanted them in the gallery. I had thought they would go in the library proper with books around them. It did turn out well. I love the idea of an "opening" but without an SM3?

  5. oh hey if anyone can tell me which model of Underwood that big one is, I'd appreciate it.

  6. Works of art! Though I wonder if patrons will be allowed to type on them? That would make it a truly living exhibit.

    Dunno about the Underwood. Since it has the big type style, it looks like they (rightfully) omitted the ribbon-color select mechanism, which I've seen used to identify models. I'm sure some wise apple in the TYPEWRITERS Yahoo group can name it, though.

  7. They look great and very inviting to type on. Would be great to collect typed review sheets after the exhibition.


Let me know if capcha comes back. Thanks for commenting.
