The Typewriter Database 196X Hispano-Olivetti Pluma 22 Serial # 242374 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 196X Hispano-Olivetti Pluma 22 Serial # 242374 This is the Spanish version of the Lettera 22, a truly amazing typewriter. It is light in every sense. At a little above 4 kg, it is much lighter than its worthy successor, the Lettera 32. It also has very light keys, and can resist really fast typing.

This machine was also sold to me by the former assembly chief of the Olivetti plant in Spain, after a restoration he carried out himself

Although the serial numbers of Hispano-Olivetti do not match with italian-made typewriters, I am pretty sure it is a model made in the 60´s in Barcelona

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpa´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didn´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98.

Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter is the only one which is NOT in my collection. How ironic...

Things then got... complex. I moved from Valladolid to my village, and suddenly found myself with a lot of room available at home, so the small collection is turning into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
