anyone know where i can find images of Greek, Cyrillic, or Central European typewriter faces?
URW Courier has all three you are after.http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/urw/courier/
thanks, tim, great suggestion. i'm hoping to find some more authentic specimens, tho...
Courier Bold Cyrillic is my favorite font. Period. In the whole world.
I was asked this recently by another designer, so prepared a sample of images of original Greek typewriter output, from legal documents. Some are from the second sheet (i.e. softer impression and transfer ink) but in these cases I have shot sections with corrections to the text, so bits with original strikes are alongside. All manual mechanical, plus one Selectric. Archive here: http://www.leonidas.org/ftp/GLtw_samples.gz
thank you ver much, gerry!
