197x Olivetti Lettera 25

Serial #3852875

This was given to me by a retiring department head at Virginia Tech who had bought it second-hand for his father who preferred typing to handwriting. Apparently his father in law used it twice when he visited back in 1994 or 95.
It had been used before that time it seems, though maybe not much as the machine is in fairly good shape. And it comes with a totally gay purse that's fun too. Honestly I can foresee times when it could be nice walking somewhere to write or while traveling.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
