The Potto Factor

by | Aug 14, 2021 | Uncategorized | 6 comments

Not everything in this blog has to be about typewriters, does it? I recently rediscovered this ca. 1979 artifact, preserved by a friend, that shows just how sophisticated my sense of humor was at the time. I was fascinated by prosimians. (The more modern term is strepsirrhines.) I did have my Remington Noiseless no. 7, but didn’t choose to use it on this dustjacket for a prosimian action novel. Maybe it will bring some chuckles.

Note the prescient inclusion of a cell phone with video screen, and the reference to Ulan Bator, Mongolia. Little did I know that I would eventually own a typewriter that refers to Ulan Bator.

OK, so I did find a typewriter connection.

    awesome. your kind review from the clarion reminds me of a 10th grade english class project (1983) where we had to take our best writing samples from the year and bind them in self-designed book covers. on the back i placed glowing reviews….

    from the national enquirer and hustler.

    always had a twisted sense of humor, it seems.

    Ha ha—yes, 10th grade is about when I created this.

    eBay. I think this one turned up around 2000. Never seen another.
