I was rummaging around last week looking for something else and came across this little gem of ephemera wedged between the pages of a 1970’s Letraset catalogue (I will post images of that here sometime…)
It is part of a set that came with Imperial typewriters during the late 1950’s/early 60’s (I think).
I love the simplicity of the execution of what could have been a real dogs dinner.
This 8×5″ card is double sided with each side designated a number (6 & 7) but I have no idea about what these means as they are almost impossible identical, but I’m sure someone will enlighten me eventually.
Its good to see Gill Sans paired up with Perpetua too.
My guess is that the 6 & 6T/& refer to particular models, but it -is- just a guess. Hope you are keeping busy!
Yes, the 6 & 7 are different models of ‘Good Companion’ with slight variations to the outermost keys. There’s a picture and article here
Thanks Alan, thats a lovely blog by someone who really loves their typewriters!
