Voss De Luxe

Voss3 - Copy

Voss2Stunning machine. Hard to put down: it’s silky smooth and exudes engineering precision. The bulbous body glows with a sheen, and the feel is crisp; the return lever swings like glassy water. It mesmerizes and seduces, extracting secrets and confessions. It laughs at your puny reams of paper, and responds like a coiled spring.

      Thanks, joevc. You nailed it: I resorted to a poetic tone because I think that’s the best way to summarize this typewriter. I’ve read about others having difficulties describing it. Won’t replace my Olymoia SM3s, but it’s a close call.
