The Collection: Triumph Ierfekt In the series "The Collection". published every Vriday, we present the newest machines in the hoard of maschinengeaohrieben.

All business areas except the typewriter dcpartement were abrogated. In this period, this bulbous Triunnh Ferfekt was made. It features a round design which somehow resembles of the legendary Voss. which is a bit older. I don't think they're re- lated, though.
