The Typewriter Database 1967 Musicwriter Musicians Model Serial # B-2378362-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dan Johnson: 1967 Musicwriter Musicians Model Serial # B-2378362-16 This is a beast! It's also fascinating. Yes, you can print your own ledger lines: there's a key for that. That makes sense: otherwise, you'd have difficulty precisely positioning the marks on the score, and the lines really do need to be proportional to some of the larger symbols.

Although this is an R. C. Allen typewriter, the decal on the back indicates that it was transformed into a "Musicwriter" by the "Music Print Corporation" in Boulder, Colorado. There is another one of these on the TWDB, and it is classified the same way.

(I believe that due to this, and to avoid confusion in the future, either the "Musicwriter" brand should be removed from the TWDB; or the "Musicwriter" model should be removed from the list of R. C. Allen models, the "Musicwriter" brand should be renamed "Music Print Corporation", and a "Musicwriter" model listed therein.)

I have always loved typewriters along with other kinds of well-engineered tools and devices such as slide rules, calculators (particular HP), radios, cameras (particularly Nikons), and microscopes. In addition to appreciating their intrinsic beauty and utility, they represent "things that need to be figured out to be understood". That's how I first learned about computers and programming in the 1970s, by figuring things out for myself. It's activity in which I never seem to tire of engaging.

Although communities have arisen around other collection interests, typewriters have the advantage that those who use them also typically enjoy communicating through words, whether those words are about the machines themselves or their lives, hopes, dreams, or expressions of beauty. There's much to be appreciated here.
