I used to work as a secretary. I was temping only and it was always a good surprise when I found font balls I had never used before. Selectric II was my favorite and I remain a typewriter fan but not a collector. The Orator font, as the name indicates, is for typing speeches that can be read from a standing distance. The manifold (all caps sans serif) is the same font as the one used on telexes (e-mail’s ancestor). It’s originally for internal use only, for making several carbon copies that will be clear and legible to the last, as for orders listing goods, where several departments need one copy. - IBM Ball Writer Comment
