1970 Olivetti Studio 45 Serial # 1585938 1970 Olivetti Studio 45 typewriter, Serial # 1585938 Anthony Mindling's 1970 Olivetti Studio 45 typewriter. 2013-05-21 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Anthony Mindling: 1970 Olivetti Studio 45 Serial # 1585938 I like having an example of a script machine, but typing with it feels a bit odd; as if my persona is trying to adapt to the Reese WitherIspoon character in "Legally Blonde". It feels like letters written with it need to be finished off with a lipstick smack. I wonder if there is a rubber stamp ...

Too bad it's not pink.

Almost at the same instant that the idea occurred to me of how much fun it might be for my children (7) and grandchildren (13) to get letters - real letters in the mail - i went digging through the dusty nether regions of our storage area to pull out my beloved 1957 Olympia SM3 Portable and the old Royal 10 I'd rescued from a neighbor's garbage can in the 1960's. Refurbishing them triggered a typewriter obsession. Don't tell my wife, but i believe there are now about 20 of them.

I love their looks, their intricate and precise mechanisms, and dinking around in the workshop tuning them up and bringing them back to life. i also, unfortunately, love the thrill of the hunt on eBay. But all of them are put to use for correspondence and my new hobby of decorated art letters. And sometimes they even inspire a bit of poetry.
