There are far too many photos to include here, so I have made an album that I will link to at the bottom of the page. It has all of the other pictures I took at the meeting.
View from the stairs
'Bulls-eye' Sholes and Glidden
Writing Ball replica
Orga Privat's of various colors. Notice the Lego replicas above
Herman: Master of his domain. King of the castle.
Herman explaining the appeal of the purple ribbon on the Purple Prose Producer
Richard explaining the proportional spacing of Jack's Graphika
He was so proud of the Remette...
Jack trying out Marty's Kolibri with his ONE FINGER typing method. Pretty impressive.
Richard accepting the first ever QWERTY Award from Peter.
The Sphinx cake. The cake originally had a piece of edible paper instead of the actual piece of paper shown here. The night before the meeting, the edible paper fell apart, so it was substituted. However, Herman brought the original down to the pool room and offered it to us as 'sacrament'. It was delicious, actually.
Two of the three known Toyriters (mine one the left, Peter's on the right). Together for the first time since production.
Mark explaining the intricate history of the paper clip.
And here is the album of ALL of the pictures. There are repeats from this post, and I have yet to take the time to label all of them. Most are pretty self explanatory. Hope you guys enjoy! (It's probably best to view in full-screen)
