1970 Olivetti Lettera 32

Serial #5370227

"Vinni"

Surprisingly this is the best machine to type on of my three Lettera 32s even though it's the newest (well maybe that makes sense, but generally typers deteriorated in terms of quality as the 60s and 70s rolled by). Case needs a clean and the machine itself has some stains in the aluminum, but what a pleasure to type on! Much more solid and reliable than the others which are skittish at best. A keeper?

From Toronto Canada. Tokyo-based entrepreneur since 1998 and meditation teacher since 2000. Learned to type in Grade 9 following mind-altering lunches and still experience flashbacks while typing. Mother did shorthand and typed 90 wpm as stenographer, dad pecked out haiku on his old typewriter as long as I remember. Moved to thermal printing, 8-character display CanoWord Pen 24 in 1986 when my typewriter broke, then to FujiXerox, Mac and iPhone. Bought my first typewriter of the new millennium (a Lettera 32) in March 2015. Muscle memory has graduated to neural reboot--every moment at the typewriter brings back fresh memories of type-happy childhood and visions of literary grandeur. Use typewriter for inspiration/rough drafts and computer/iPhone (Scrivener/Evernote) for polishing.
