The Typewriter Database 1973 Olivetti Studio 45 Serial # 9302027 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of James Gifford: 1973 Olivetti Studio 45 Serial # 9302027 I picked up this early seventies beauty at an outdoor antiques show. I love typing on Olivettis and haven't seen one of these locally. This particular typewriter features a very high serial number (the latest serial # on the database is about 7,000 fewer), and was allegedly made in Canada, Don Mills (Toronto) to be exact, home to Canada's first suburb and one of the first designed suburbs in the world. In any case, the typewriter was a good price and is in great shape, and it came with the original brushes in their little Olivetti box, with the instructions in mint condition, so I'm happy. The photo lies: it looks blue in the picture but it's closer to green in reality.

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.
