1971 Olivetti DORA Serial # 6302619 1971 Olivetti DORA typewriter, Serial # 6302619 Michael Hoehne's 1971 Olivetti DORA typewriter. 2021-06-20 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Michael Hoehne: 1971 Olivetti DORA Serial # 6302619 I thought this was a toy when I saw it on the yard sale table, especially as it was under a ColecoVision dust cover. I took it anyway and only as I was putting it into the car did I realize it is an Olivetti Dora (or a variant; the label is missing). The paper table really is textured like that.

Note that the bottom panel does not seal off the keyboard, so your cookie crumbs will not end up in the works! Thoughtful Olivetti design!

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.
