Virotyp - 1914


Made in France.
Constructing engineer: H. Viry, Paris.
Manufacturer: Machines a écrire "Virotyp".
The manufacturers of the Virotyp had put on the market a new apparatus which had a great success through the manufacturers' world. With a very uncommon patented system, it will be possible to write with typographic types, on any design, counter drawings, etc., at any inclination or position of the machine, and the writing will always be clear and visible. With the indelible ink used, reproduction on blue paper comes out perfectly.
After a short apprenticeship, the speed one can get is greater than handwriting. It is so simple that anybody can use it after a few minutes. Figures, letters or sign, with visible result can be printed on any point or line with exactitude. Every designer's office is a prospect for this ingenious and cheap apparatus, the price of which was 196 franc. Besides, the beauty and regularity of the writing recommend the Virotyp.
