The Typewriter Database 1964 Triumph Tippa Serial # 4410332 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1964 Triumph Tippa Serial # 4410332 "Trolley"

Cracked case and filthy condition can't take away from the beauty and lightning performance of this curvy, highly portable typer. It's coffee and cream finish - while plastic at at time when many were still using metal - is classic and stylish. The response is unmatched for high-speed typing. This model has Spanish and French keys in a QWERTY configuration. Pica font. Combined this working Tippa with a broken German machine I'm using for parts pending acquisition of the skill to repair it, but these photos precede that work.

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.
