A fabulous typeface! And a fine tale of typospheria.
the continuing adventures of the mad. Tea and biscuits all around! :D
I totally get this.
I have a green Futura 800 with that typeface. Love it!
Not only the "e" looks very nice, look at the curly "h" and "n", beautiful!
PS, you should upload this machine and a typesample to the Database :D
Like Ted said. And your story helps make the rest of us feel just a little bit more 'normal' :-)
