I own a little collection of typewriters and calculating machines.
What draws me to these objects, is that altough they are outdated and obsolete today, they were once used daily, regarded as normal machines, or even as luxury items, as the newest technology money could get. How did the new owner of a brand new Royal or Olivetti feel ? He had to be happy and proud of it !
- BOB 315
Simple, easy, and with an iconic typeface.
- Canon QS 60
How modern ! No more smacking noises, no more uneven letters ! This is the future, I assure you !
- Canon S-61
Portable, so you could bring it home from work. I can even store digitally WHOLE PAGES of text ! Can you imagine ?
- Olivetti Praxis 48
Its design and the fact that it is mechanically assisted makes this one my favourite of all.
I refurbished and fixed this one ! And it works like a charm, once you learn how to, that is…
- Unknown machine
Still a work in progress…
