1973 Adler Tippa Serial # 5966383 1973 Adler Tippa typewriter, Serial # 5966383 John Munroe's 1973 Adler Tippa typewriter. 2022-11-19 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of John Munroe: 1973 Adler Tippa Serial # 5966383 "DeLorean"

Light metal and plastic straight lines make this less than sexy but blindingly fast for typing. European characters make things interesting. rather less portable than my Olivetti Lettera 32 because of hard and less ergonomic case. A fun bit of fluff. The single paper bail works fine. Needs a bit of cleaning! I love the European accents and the fact that I got this typer from Jordi Vollom. The commotion I made clacking away on it at the Shinagawa station Starbucks is something I'll never forget.

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.
