They were serious about warning against a two-color ribbon! See all those red stickers. But none on the left spool; were we supposed to install new ribbons only on the right side?

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
