How to use the Emerson typewriter

The company's instruction manual for the Emerson must have baffled a few users back in the day. It's both unnecessarily technical and completely lacking in illustrations. I decided to make a new, illustrated user's guide for a friend, an expert in American thought, who will be receiving my Emerson as a gift.

And another one arrives! This Danish translation of the Manifesto by Mikkel H. and Tore D. landed in my mailbox today (on paper). Tak!

Въстанието на пишещата машина

The latest translation of the Typewriter Insurgency Manifesto comes from Mark G. in Bulgaria. Благодаря ти, Mark!

I have two Bulgarian typewriters in my collection. This one is a 1927 Merz no. 2 from Germany.

And this Rex, also from Germany, is a name variant of the G&O (Graf & Oertel). 
Read more about it here and here.
