The Typewriter Database 196X Hispano-Olivetti Pluma 22 Serial # 273734 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Javier Vazquez del Olmo: 196X Hispano-Olivetti Pluma 22 Serial # 273734 A rare one, this cream white Pluma 22. Or at least pretty rare in Spain, where these alternatively coloured Plumas were produced for a shorter period than the regular machine green Pluma 22.

This one has seen a lot of typing, an awful lot indeed. The previous owner was trained to be a professional secretary, and this typewriter has endured years of hard work which can clearly be seen everywhere. But, as usual with this generation of Olivettis (and Hispanos), the machinery is designed to resist anything. Now it works pretty well, fast as the lightning but a bit imprecise.

Got it in my village, a nest of underrated Olivettis, usually forgotten under a lot of useless junk.

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.
