Guest post: The IBM Model D Executive typewriter

by | May 24, 2020 | IBM | 5 comments

I’m glad to present a guest post by Peter Stuart. Peter is known among typewriter collectors as an expert on typefaces, including the proportional typefaces offered on IBM Executive typewriters. He was recently featured on the Austin Typewriter, Ink. podcast.

Today, Peter kindly introduces us to the IBM Model D Executive, picking up where I left off over 9 years ago in a post about the Model C.


Peter has also sent me this sample of text that features the cool Shadow Printing feature. Can you tell how it was done?

    I'm curious how you typed that last line. I suspect you typed it once, then returned to the starting position without a line advance, spaced 2 units, then retyped the same line. I doubt you typed a character, then backspace followed by a 2 unit space forward before retyping the same letter. I like it.

    . . . remember using this to type titles and headings. All caps on expand mode, then reposition carriage
    on the same spot where typing started on the same writing line. Backspace 1 unit then retype.
