One of my favourite mechanical typewriters is the Facit TP 2 (PDF), built in the late 60’s. It has an extraordinary carriage design that moves in a tube. Its building quality is great, and typing with it is a pleasure.
This week a great book arrived at my book shop: The FACIT Model – Globalism, Localism, Identity. Next to many great illustrations it tells the story of a famous Swedish brand in the period between 1922 and 1998 and contains interesting interviews.
