1967 Olivetti Lettera 32 #2887195


Description:

This was one of the first typewriters I bought off eBay for £12.

Very tight and snappy typing.

If I had to choose one machine to keep, this would be it. Very light machine to transport.

Zippers on cases aren't great..

Typewriter collector, previous sewing machine collector.

Originally from the Garden of England, Kent. I have lived in Sheffield for over fifteen years.

As a young child, I always enjoyed taking things apart and seeing how they functioned.

I have been collecting a range of vintage typewriters for over two years.

Previously, I was interested in restoring sewing machines, then I acquired my mothers Olivetti Dora and looked under the hood and typed, I was hooked on typewriters and how they worked.

I learn something every day from passionate bloggers and typewriter enthusiasts.

Fan of Joe Van Cleave's typewriter video series.
