International Paper Box Machine Company

Operator's Guide

Royal 40 Model KJ

Here are typical excerpts from one of my early "hardware" manuals. This machine was a folder-gluer, used to make paperboard boxes. This manual is included to give a "taste" of my non-computer technical writing skills.

I wrote all text, created all art by hand, took most photos, created all layouts, and did all copying and binding. (Those were the days!)

Writing Tool: IBM DisplayWrite on PC XT (early PC)

Layout Tool: PageMaker 2.0 on Macintosh

Please note: Some of the photos contained herein have a moire' pattern across them. That is due to the original manual having had screened photos, that is, photos which had a dot pattern added (like in a newspaper), so that they would reproduce well on a photocopy machine.
