Type Globe Made Out of an IBM Selectric Typewriter ‘Golf Ball’

Type Globe

This awesome type globe was recently purchased by typography enthusiast Jennifer Kennard. The globe was never intended to be a decorative object—it is an interchangeable type ball or “golf ball” for the IBM Selectric typewriter. The ball allowed Selectric users to rapidly swap in different fonts, scripts (Hebrew, Thai, etc.), even choreography symbols known as Labanotation.
