Olivetti Lettera 22

My new (old) typewriter

9 Apr 2020

I’ve been thinking about getting a manual typewriter for a long while. The idea of something so mechanical and yet so simple compared to the computers I used every day was highly appealing.

When I was in Venice last year, I visited the Olivetti Museum in Piazza San Marco and knew than that I would love to get one of their beautiful original typewriters one day.

Last week was my birthday, and with all of us in lock-down I decided it was time for me to finally get one.

So here’s my light blue Olivetti Lettera 22!
