When my mother was young (and specially after my birth) she supplemented the family's income from home by typing for students and businesses. When I was a student I used the same machine for my assignments, lesson plans and thesis. The years were not kind to the machine, the mechanics rusted or broke, the letters worn with frayed edges or disintegrating serifs and fine lines. Ruth's typewriter is a declaration of my appreciation of many years of service the brave little machine gave... As you can see I clearly didn't get the letters repaired ;) The font looks like I rearranged and glued down what was left of the raised surfaces, to continue using the typewriter and give my words a very modern look ;)) A "grunge-writer" ?? Did you notice that no typewriters were ever sold with this kind of modern destructured typefaces?! ;)

Since I started this font many years ago (Ruth was very amused and appreciated this hommage) this work has now become a memorial to her

A unique font with a beautiful story

Comment by time.peace Tue, 7th september

Thank you, time-peace. And: it was a beautiful little machine, not chunky, very feminin - but maybe I thought that because the make was "Erika"

Uppercase I looks broken to me

Comment by mgUdit Sat, 11th september

@mgUdit yes that's the point. it's supposed to be broken

Comment by merrybot_v2 Sat, 11th september

@mgUdit: you're almost right. May I test a selection of your UC "i" suggestions that match better the feeling of the rest of my font?  My UC "i" is not just broken but positively disintegrating :´(
