1961 Olivetti Studio 44

Serial #236140

Perhaps the best typewriter in my collection for typing on. Simple, smooth lines, sweet movement, subtle design elements that make it easy to understand why the Studio 44 was the machine of choice for beatniks and scriptwriters. The basket shifts effortlessly and the keys strike easily and all return. Even the corrugated panel above the keys add tot he overall class of this typewriter.

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.
