1970 Olympia SM8

Yet another very nice Olympia. Every one of the Olympia SM8s and SM9s I come across is in great condition operationally and aesthetically. Even the ribbons have been uniformly quite usable. It's as if the owners knew they were special and took good care of them.

While I find all of mankind's inventions interesting, I am most enchanted by the human-scale arts and devices, the ones that can be created (and repaired) in a home workshop or studio; the ones that can be understood by looking at them; the ones that do something useful or stir admiration. Typewriters work for me.
