The Typewriter Database 1978 Erika Präsident Deluxe Serial # 5869025 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1978 Erika Präsident Deluxe Serial # 5869025 This is a curious fellow, with its Robotronic typeface and round keys. It's a snappy typer, with a case with unusual latches that spin around rather than flipping up. The type is fairly crisp and after a good cleaning it will type well, though the German key arrangement will take some getting used to.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
