An Odd Little Duck

An ommage to Dill: I'm little, but I'm BOLD!
With type this large you use up space fast.

Typebar? More like crowbar.

Red? Don't even think about it.

  1. That's a great typeface! It smacks of the voice of the ringmaster of yore, a big bold sound for a forgotten age!

  2. That is pretty cool!

    I've never come across anything other than 10 or 12 cpi machines. Well, maybe an 11 on an Olympia, if I've measured those right...

    And I love the captions.

  3. This particular typeface is 6 characters per inch. The word "Corona" is exactly 1 inch long. On my screen it is rendered at 100%. Crazy, huh?

  4. Very weird! I have this same typewriter but the typeface is boring, I think 10 cpi.

  5. Dude, you should totally bring that to the Type-in. People will dig it!

  6. I have a Sears Tower President, which is essentially a carbon copy of this line. Love it!
