So I picked up this old typewriter on eBay. I tried to get one at a car boot sale and failed miserably. Haggling it seems is not my forte.

My sole intention was to convert it to a digital typeface. It would have a bit of character and look a wee bit different from all the other typewriter fonts. That was the plan anyway.

So I got to work, I had to buy new ink ribbons, but that was about it. The weird thing I found out that is had no number one. the key wasn’t broken it just didn’t have a number one. Weird or what?

A quick search on the internet revealed that some typewriters never had a number 1 to save on keyboard space. You have to use the L key.

The keys were dirty, choked with ink from years of use. I liked that as it added the character I was looking for.

The typeface is no longer free, sorry about that. You can buy it on my Creative Market Shop.

It’s an old typewriter font and does exactly what is says on the tin.

That is all.
