Typing my way back to nature
Is the Orator all caps? It is a nice looking typeface, either way, and the Delegate is phenomenal! Of course, as you said, now you will have to find a Selectric III.A very generous gift from Teeritz. He has only just done a post for me about finding the perfect watch for myself. Hell of a guy!

The Orator is indeed all caps -- but look at the first letter of that sentence; the "O" in Orator is even taller! So the shift key does work on this all-cap type element.teeritz's watch post is very interesting. Are there any shown that you are drawn to? I liked the Hamiltons.
Ah, much like the checkwriting Remington Portable 2 I have. All caps, but shifted they are BIGGER! Very nice, and a lovely typeface. I am drawn to SEVERAL of them, but have yet to decide on one. I, too, really like the Hamiltons and will have to look them up.
Awesome, it's so nice of teeritz to send you those elements.
Delegate looks super.
very elegant styles - typewriter evolution had come a long way.
I have some sweet balls for a III too and only own a II. Time for us to get hunting...
Ha ha ha ha.... Teeritz! Nice one. Love the look of those typefaces too. Nice indeed. One day when I grow up, I'll own a Selectric.
Did you ever write on why there are so many typewriter types?
That is a great gift. I too, like the Delegate.
Happy to have sent them, sir. I knew they'd be put to good use. I must say I do like the lower case 'y' on the Delegate font. Enjoy!
That's the beauty of the IBM Selectric - you could change the typeface easily as needed. I've worked to collect most of the common elements for the Selectric II and enjoy finding new ones I haven't seen. I know part of the joy of typewriter collecting is finding and bringing machines back to working order, but I do have some refurbished Selectrics (I, II and III) for sale if you are firstname.lastname@example.org
Cameron - i have a selectric II also that i have have typeballs for... it doesnt work quite right now but i hope to try to fixs it or get it fixed and try out those typeballs!
That typewriter looks familiar, it was probably the first electric typewriter we had in our high school. I remember starting out one year with manual typewriters (and never getting more than 10 WPM!) and thinking the new electric ones were the cat's ass.
