Anna Conroy of Type Heritage, LLC, Philadelphia comments on Garnet Euro Typewriter and its new place in time today: “Wow! nice lookin’ face cowboy! —Perfect, somewhere between Cable; [Rudolph Koch, 1927] which was about the first transatlantic telegraph cable –not ITC Kabel with raised x-height; and Futura [Paul Renner, 1928].
