  1. Old Fred Dey must have been the man back in da day! Otherwise the firm wouldn’t have been using him for product endorsement. And Dey aside, I had no idea there were once typewriters than did bold and italic!

    I can’t remember much about typewriters. I recall you could underline. I only came to them in the 80s. Mostly I was programming drum machines then for backbeats for the live shows we were doing, and for records. I first got into print about 1991 or so – in music magazines – and it was using a typewriter.

    But with the machine Dey was using you’d have been well away.

      I thought changing typefaces was possible only when they went to “golf ball”-style machines in the 1970s!
