The typewriter fits into a case roughly 6in square by 2in deep and weighs only 2lb.
Another bad scan from People of a notebook c1960 that will fit into a man's pocket
I found a few miniatures from the early days of typewriter history and a Giant for those macropsia type days.
Comments: pocket type
What size paper does it take?

I had one of these for a while in the now long ago:
It really was noiseless, many of the normally clickety and clackety parts being subdued by the substitution of softer components.

Nora: Post-it notes?
No - normal apparently. A telescopic carriage.
nb - But it's the word "roughly" that worries me...
Juke: Ah - I see: http://staff.xu.edu/~polt/typewriters/noiselessportable.html
But then - the clickety-clack is one of the things I miss about the old Olivetti etc.
