...typing for peace, democracy, and the glory of the Typosphere
I love your reasons for buying more typewriters. Our motives for doing what we do are almost always varied and endlessly interesting.I also love that tidbit of information about Walter Gropius.
Thanks Dana. I'm sure my list isn't exhaustive but I ran out of paper and the last reason seemed a good place to stop. As for Gropius's eagle, thanks due to Herr Sommeregger, proprietor of the Swiss Typewriter Museum.
I hadn't heard that about the Adler eagle. That's a very well thought out typecast. Every time I hear or read about Gropius I think of Tom Lehrer's song about Alma.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hH4J8CIBc7Q

There are several Adler typewriters I have seen on line that looked interesting. The Eagle is especially attractive. I like your reasoning for another addition to the collection.
That's a good list of reasons to buy a new typewriter!
