Case Study REVEALED!

Ok, here are the machines inside each of those cases–from Left to Right:

SCM “Galaxy; SCM “Sterling”; Facit; Singer “Scholastic”; Royal “Model P”; Remington “Portable Model One”, Royal “Sahara.”

My sincere apologies for not getting a pic of these machines lined up… too busy yakking with Messrs. Ardito and Kruk.

HOWEVER… I think every one of these machines is up on Mr. Bryan Kruk’s Typewriters 101 page in the FOR SALE section. Click here to check them out!

Er, for some reason never thought of this clip before… but there’s something neat about Dylan trying to get a lyric from notebook to typed page  (I think, you can see him sort of nodding his head to check if a line scans OK… ) while Baez warbles for the camera… each pursuing their path as single-mindedly as possible under the circumstances…. Looks like Joan is playing a Gibson… Thanks R. Polt, who says Dylan is strumming an Olympia SG1!

No robot typeface, is a robot okay?

Along a busy road and train tracks, he stands, tall and eternally startled...
