The Typewriter Database 1957 Olivetti Lettera 22 Serial # 6706190 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1957 Olivetti Lettera 22 Serial # 6706190 A nice little Scottish-made Olivetti that came in a green cloth bag with a zipper and a snap. I don't know an awful lot about Olivettis, but this seems like a scaled-down version or predecessor of the Studio machines. This is a fairly basic typewriter. The ribbon cover is a pain to take on and off. Otherwise, I could type regularly on this one.

I have suddenly become a typewriter collector. It started with one purchase and has ballooned to a collection of more than forty in less than a year. I'm learning fast but I'm still a novice compared to others in the typosphere, including here in Toronto, where I haunt thrift shops and antique markets, and even the occasional basement. I'm a former magazine writer and published author, and a professional book editor by trade, and I learned to type on manuals despite the proliferation of electrics, so I like to think I come by my sudden and rather manic passion honestly.
