1960 Voss ST 24 Serial # 179410 1960 Voss ST 24 typewriter, Serial # 179410 John Munroe's 1960 Voss ST 24 typewriter. 2016-08-16 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1960 Voss ST 24 Serial # 179410 "Mandibles"

Pristine (though filthy and stinky) typer with a dignified micro typeface. Types rather well after cleaning. Bulky but classic leatherette and cloth case is two-piece. Came with brush, manual and cleaning cloth. Price came down twice to within my range, and the seller also mended the inside plaid lining in the meantime to sweeten the deal. A keeper!

Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow.

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.
