1982 Adler Gabriele 8008 Serial # 22030456 1982 Adler Gabriele 8008 typewriter, Serial # 22030456 Steven Kuterescz's 1982 Adler Gabriele 8008 typewriter. 2020-04-02 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Kuterescz: 1982 Adler Gabriele 8008 Serial # 22030456 As well as “Adler”, the Gabriele 8008/800L was also sold under the “Triumph” brand, and sold as the Alpha 2001/2002 under the “Royal” brand in the USA. I believe it was first released in 1982 (the year I entered here, but the actual year of manufacture could be 1983 or 1984, It seems like they were discontinued after that year. The 8008 was the first in a long series of “Gabriele” portable and compact electronic typewriters. A lowly 10 cps and a loud typing action (not helped by a rock hard platen). See blog link ;)

Perth, Western Australia. The best place in the world to be during a pandemic, but not the ideal location for a typewriter collector. My collecting interests shifted from mechanical typewriters to electronic. There's something about the daisy wheel I like and there are more design variations than you might think. I still have few mechanical and electric typewriters. Running out of physical space ... ;)
