Default Wordcraft word processor

Going back to the late 1970s/early 1980 does anyone have any old Wordcraft manuals, diskettes or dongles? Originally it ran on the Commodore PET, then other things like Sirius,. Rainbow and IBM PC.

I feel like J R Hartley in his search for "Fly Fishing":

because I am Mike Lake and, with Pete Dowson, I created Wordcraft along with its derivative Typecraft.

I am looking for material to build up an archive but I would also welcome photos of stuff from those who prefer to retain the material. I can be reached directly via [removed by Mod.]

Thanks.

Many thanks for that.

I have some excellent photos from a chap in The Netherlands who has a collection of Commodore related stuff.

I think I have found just about everything I can from web searches so I am now looking for physical material that might still be gathering dust somewhere. I tend to have regular purges on old stuff, other people never throw anything away.

I spotted some old Wordcraft dongles for sale on ebay but they had already gone.

If you haven't already, you can set up ebay searches to email you alerts whenever there's a match.
