Joe Van Cleave, an inspiring typewriter and photography blogger and youtuber started an assignment series. Every other week he gives out a topic, and then it is ready – steady – type!
This is my first contribution, assignment no 5 is about the phrase “It was a dark and stormy night”. First used by Washington Irving, it became famous and parodied after Edmund Bulwer-Lytton began his novel “Paul Clifford” with this phrase.
What you can read here is my 1st draft with some corrections, written down in some 15 minutes, so don‘t take it serious 🙂 It was typed on my orange Robotron Cella, designed by Karl_Clauss_Dietel and built from 1983 – 1985 in GDR. The font is the Kristall, one of my favourites.
