What a truly excellent typeface -- but more importantly, your good news! I look forward to knowing more about it.
Hey, you found an almost exact match to my Iron Lady that I picked up last week, typeface & all (except paint color)! Where'd you find it?I have to say, the decision about the bounty from Eric Lawson is really a moot point, isn't it? You're going to adopt them (you know it in your heart of hearts), and it comes down to deciding what to do with them, no?Suggestions:1) "Adopt a Typer" for your students. set up a typing contest for them and the winners get to pick from a corral of type-ready machines - to take home and keep! :D2) save a couple for prizes at the next Phoenix Type-In!3) broken ones can be donated to Bill over at MTE. Parts is parts!4) convince another teacher in a neighboring school to start up a branch of the CTP, complete with a ready pool of machines and a curriculum.5) start an Etsy store and sell overflow to fund CTP projects and/or Type-Ins, or to keep the rest of the herd in ribbons. (:
Not that you asked or anything, but I like Ted's virally-themed suggestion number 4 best. You have been documenting the 'model' for using them in class, so there's a (excuse the metaphor) plug-and-play attractiveness to broadening the reach of your CTP.
Mike here in Philadelphia....if 5 or so of them are all the same, sell to us for a nominal fee and we pay all shipping to use at a program called "Mighty Writers" which teaches inner city (yes, mostly minority/poor boys) to write, using comic books, rap, editorials, letters, whatever works.No, Mighty Writers hasn't agreed to it yet -- that would be my job!
That typeface is flippin' gorgeous.
