So that I don't have to write every word by hand when learning Italian, I bought my first typewriter. Now I am surrounded by 5 Olivetti machines ... they seem to be attracted to my new language skills. And because I quickly discovered my interest in different typefaces, I focused my collection on them. I currently have 23 different typefaces on 26 machines.
