The Kowal Portable Typewriter and Adding Machine - Steampunkification of a Laptop with stickers

Simply stunning what the cunning application of custom stickers can do for a previously plain laptop! Above is the Kowal Portable Typewriter and Adding Machine, a laptop modification very much inspired by very early 20th Century typewriters from Royal, Remington and Smith-Corona.

Using custom stickers from Schtickers, Ms Kowal (a very creative lady) initially applied stickers to the exterior of the laptop to get a feel for the quality, and then carefully photographing the keyboard of the laptop, arranged for another sticker printing for cutting out for the panels and keys. The keys have been cut out, stuck onto the existing keys and then both key and sticker edged with black permanent marker. You’d never know it to look at it *chuckles*

Very well done, and shows that if you have ingenuity and a way with image design, there’s no need for a spanner to make something wonderful! Thank you Mr Kreidler, Mr Burger, Mr Owensby, David H. and Daemon for letting me know, and Ms Kowal herself for permission.
