Typecast: Another year, another journal


  1. I've kept a journal since about 3 years before you were born, but almost never look at those early jottings. I guess I should!

    < geek >What machine did you type this on? This must be the most horizontal typeface I've ever seen.< /geek >

  2. yes, that typeface looks might compressed!

  3. Well, I like reading journals from when I was 12 because I was in such a completely different space then, with such petty concerns... poignant, really.

    Oh dear, I must not have sized this down correctly. Forgive me, I tend to be rather careless with the ratios... this was typed on my Princess 300. I hope you clicked on it to get the full un-manipulated image, because it is a far more accurate representation of the typeface than my poor attempts to make it fit in the frame of the blog! You'll see that it is a quite ordinary pica...

  4. Even with proper proportions it is an out-of-the-ordinary type design, I'd say.

    There seems to have been an efflorescence of typefaces on typewriters in the mid to late '50s.


Thanks for your comment! Please note that comments are moderated; so this will be posted as soon as I have read it :)
