  1. hmmn, Intrigued. I don't have "Andina" listed as a manufacturer in the typewriter database. Is it a main manufacturer, or a rebrand? (and if rebrand, what would the main manufacturer be?)

    Let me know and I'll add the brand to the database. (:

    1. Talleres Alonso of Valencia, Spain, was a small manufacturer that made the Regia, Junior (AKA Winsor and Turia), Talbos, and Andina. I'm e-mailing you a copy of ETCetera 86 and 88, which discuss these typewriters. None of them appeared with the name Alonso, so you'll have to decide whether to make that the master name or (as I'd suggest) devote separate pages to the separate brand names.

    2. added all these MFR's. If you'd like to upload your Junior, Regia and Andina into the Database, you can own those categories! :D

  2. This is great. Faux back-casting from the future. Or is it?

  4. All things numeric do not make sense to me, so I I have cognitive issues with all the figures you typed. That said, that is one very interesting hispano typewriter and the techno font is awesome. You mentioned to me when we met that you are not a fan of techno font, I guess you've had a change of heart.

  7. I like this. I've got it playing in my head to a Vangelis inspired digital soundtrack.

    Love you work.

  8. Very fun post. That typewriter would go hand in hand with some mean Drum n Bass blasting through the Sennheisers!
