At Last

Royal Quiet DeLuxe c. 1953, aka "Etta"

20090721 typecast

Update: for those having trouble getting a clear impression (*cough* Speegle *cough), here are some detail photos of the paper used for this typecast. I tweaked the "levels" on the above pic to boost the contrast a bit, though I'm not sure that was necessary, since you can see the lettering on the other side bleeding through.

I think colorcasting is The Answer to the great coming typewriter ribbon blight of the mid 21st century. "And they will know you by the trail of wax."

You and Duffy keep joking about this upcoming ribbonpocalypse like it's a done deal. Were you guys sent from a future dominated by self-aware laser printers/killing machines?

Seriously, you guys are freaking me out.

I have it on some authority that it is coming. That is for a future post.

Aw, man. First Kodachrome and now this. Depletion of natural resources sucks.

Well, all that worry for nothing, eh? (:
