Beautiful and shiny, and great review. Love the shift key detal!
"The Baby Empire". Also British, though.
How could I have forgotten? I was the one who sent that to you!
Totally beautiful!I've e-mailed you a picture of "The Society," an Olympia name variant sold in the UK. This use of the definite article seems to be a British trait. To me it sounds elevated, distinctive and a little aristocratic.
I've seen those before, they were sold by Army & Navy Stores, of all things!
What a great example! I love the Good Companion in gloss black. I'm not overly impressed with them to actually type on but ooze character and sound pretty good - sort of thwacky - too. It looks like Richard has the measure of we Brits :-)
Oh, the definite article comes from the J B Priestley novel after which the typewriter was named. Imagine if Hermes brought out a Dharma Bums model...
Beautimus! Fussy indeed, but character-full (:
