I never paid attention to typing fonts; I just liked the typewriters. But the more you guys write about it, the more interesting it gets to me. Nice comparison of the robot fonts! I think I like the swissa most.
I think the Hermes Baby font is the most robotic. And I like the Hermes and the SWISSA fonts for being less condensed than the Triumph's. Swiss typography is famous, see Helvetica, Frutiger etc. :)
sooo excited, can't wait to be robot typing myself :D
Soon he will feel the power of a fully operational robot typewriter!
For me, the Tippa S wins best robot typeface. The Swissa is a beauty!
It's robot week?? Time to get out my robot stamp again. I like the Triumph.
I'm still voting for Olympia. The letters seem a little more boxy than many of the others. I like that.But the Hermes may win for most robotic.This was a fun post!
@schrijfmachine: Typefaces are the poor man's way of collecting typewriters - I find it a bit easier to afford machines with unusual typefaces - when I find them - than to dream of Bar-Locks and the like :-)@Strikethru: Little-known fact - YOU started robot week! :-)I like how everyone voted for a different robot style! Amazingly, it works out to a three-way tie: two votes each for Hermes, Swissa, and Triumph.
