1958 Olympia SM4

Serial #1141373

A gift from a family member who has found out about my obsession. She bought this machine as a teenager and used it for many years. The space bar needs work, but otherwise this machine is as close to mint as any other I own. Love the brown. Just in time for fall typing.

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.
