1967 Olivetti Studio 45

Serial #1944985

The monstrous case.

This lightweight sister machine to the Studio 44 (my current favourite machine) doesn't look like much in tan (why would they make tan machines and not black, red, green, blue?) but it works quite well. It features some nice flourishes, such as the red tab key, the retracting return lever, and the line spacer that resembles a car's gear shift. A solid typer, especially for the CAN$25 I paid for it. The only drawback is the monstrous case (pictured).

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.
