1970 Olivetti Praxis 48 Serial # 5236049 1970 Olivetti Praxis 48 typewriter, Serial # 5236049 Michael Hoehne's 1970 Olivetti Praxis 48 typewriter. 2013-12-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1970 Olivetti Praxis 48 Serial # 5236049 The Praxis 48 is a fascinating machine. I bought a new one in the 70s and unwittingly sold it---to another graphic designer, who was smarter than I was, eh? This one I bought out of renewed appreciation and nostalgia but it was poorly packed and destroyed in shipping. Electric, but still irresistible.

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.
