    Hi, Richard: Great blog. Just curious how you manage to reproduce such clear images of your typed pages and typewriters. I tried to take pictures of my recently purchased Royal KMG with the wife's iPad and came nowhere near the quality of your images. What's the secret? More light? Better camera? Or do you scan the images before uploading them? Thanks.

    Thanks, Rolf. For the best results digitizing typewritten text, you do need a flatbed scanner. But I usually just take a picture with my iPhone 5. Sometimes I tweak the contrast or sharpness with Photoshop or Instagram. The camera on early iPads is poor, so maybe that's your trouble.

    There is advice on photographing typewriters in Chapter 7 of my book.

    My advice, Cynthia, is to forget Billy. ;) (I do like that RC Allen!)

    This Adler seems the perfect typewriter. The right button seems to select the feeling of the touch keyboard. And the typing is directthen snappy Would dream to have one!

    Wow, cursive and electric! Richard, I think someone needs to do research into what might be considered the rarest typeface ever produced.

    It is an outstanding machine, but it doesn't have a touch adjustment. The lever on the right is for setting and clearing tab stops. (It is marked S and L for Setzen and Löschen.)
