GP IBM Selectric Typeball Catalog – Font Styles

I can’t remember where I got this – probably from the Golfball Typewriter Yahoo group, which is a great resource for finding out about the rich and interesting world of Selectrics. Note that my GP “Calligraphy” ball is listed in this catalog, and there’s a few others I’ll be looking for now too: Headline, Contempo, Oriental, Title, Report, Astrology, Forms 1 and Diagnostic are all on my want list. :D

  1. I recently purchased a used IBM Correcting Selectric III and I’m in love with it. Has anyone come across the “Report” typing element?

    1. Not me. That’s one I’m looking for in the 88 character element, along with Contempo and Oriental. (:

      1. Until I saw your website, I had no idea IBM made the Contempo and Oriental fonts! Do you know if there are bilingual (Spanish or French) elements avaialable?

        Do you have the 96 character element for Report? I did not know it was available in the 88 character.

        1. nope, I don’t have Report in either size. sorry (:

  2. Ugh–never mind, I just saw the French-Canadian and Latin American catalog items.

  3. Munk: May I ask which font elements you already have?

  4. Hello,

    I thought to let you know I saw Contempo available on eBay! I cannot recall if it’s one you already have but thought to just alert you!
