The Wordsmith's Manual Typewriter

This is the manual typewriter that recalls the thoughtful, well-written correspondence of yesteryear. Devoid of technological crutches such as spell-check and deletion, each of its 44 keys requires a firm, purposeful stroke for a steady click-clacking cadence that encourages the patient, considered sentiment of a wordsmith who thinks before writing. Using a 10-characters-per-inch Pica 87 font, it faithfully reproduces the eclectic printed impressions of its forebears—variable kerning, subtly ghosted letters, and nuanced baseline shifts—imparting unique, personal character to every letter, piece of prose, or verse of poetry. Updated with a lightweight yet durable ABS housing and carrying case for easy portability. Black/red/stencil spool ribbon. 4 3/4" H x 12 1/2" W x 13 1/2" D. (16 1/2 lbs.)
