The Japanese Index Typewriter MAC M-40, otherwise known as the “Panwriter.” What a beautiful device, and it’s available for purchase on eBay.
This is a Japanese typewriter “Panwriter.” Manufactured by Nippon Typewriter Company. This machine still works. Japanese can be printed very clearly.
The character about 2000 or more is usually used in Japan. Each the character has the meaning. This machine has the character of 2205. It is a surprise that has a lot of characters like this. These characters can be exchanged if necessary. The ribbon almost remains. It is a very beautiful and good condition.
Very nice modern take on the traditional Japanese Kokeshi doll, by Pen Pencil Stencil. Via Josh McKible.
