The Typewriter Database 1971 Olivetti Lettera 30 Serial # 601959 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1971 Olivetti Lettera 30 Serial # 601959 Gotta love those jutting corners. This lightweight typewriter seems quite deep. And the bag is ahead of its time. I wouldn't carry this machine around in its purse, myself, but I do appreciate the design, especially the word Olivetti stamped all over it.

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.
