Crass Commercialism Rises Again

Look to the right. No, not in reality. On the computer screen. See the pages listed under the CTP logo? At the bottom it says "For Sale." The link is nor for sale, but the typewriter described therein is. Take a look. The SC-Silent w/Orator Typeface has found a new home. Keep an eye peeled for other wonderful machines that might be "For Sale."

Keep Them Flying

More poster silliness. This one's not so forceful.

UPDATE: Corrected spelling of "aid."

Take Up the Glorious Cause!

Just a little, light-hearted poster. Please, pardon my amateurish computer skills. If you want a high-res PDF, let me know. If there is enough interest I'll put a link to it.

A Viral Typosphere

Mike Clemens mentioned this idea and I ran with it. If you see a lonely looking typewriter at an antique mall, Goodwill, or thrift store feed one of these pages into the machine. Then, walk away. Inquisitive people will definitely read the page and this might pique their interest in the Typosphere. Fun idea, huh?

I do not recommend that you bother people or get into trouble over this. The idea is definitely more surreptitious that a poster, card, or website, but it can be a fun little discovery for the person who buys that typewriter you pass up. Feel free to adapt the format to your aesthetic or regional tastes. I have linked two different versions. One is geared for Arizona, the other is more generic.

N.B. There is no image on the bottom half because the page is meant to be fed into a typewriter.
