The Typewriter Database 1963 Voss S 24 Serial # 216032 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1963 Voss S 24 Serial # 216032 "Lullaby"

This white and blue beauty is in fine shape and types with a superb script typeface. The case is also in good shape - no tears in the plaid lining or pockets - and in spite of considerable dust and hair (removed since these photos were taken), it has very little odor. Types like a dream in spite of granite platen which makes for a very loud typing experience. No late-night work for this baby!

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
