The Typewriter Database 1972 Smith Corona Super G Serial # 7YP-12347 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1972 Smith Corona Super G Serial # 7YP-12347 You can't help but love these sleek Ghia machines. The vibrant colour! The racing stripes! The typing action is not spectacular--akin to a Corsair, say, a little loud and snappy--but it's the design that pulls the weight of this model. Now to find one in brown and another in orange.

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.
