★★★ Welcome to the PREMIER TYPEWRITER SHOP on ETSY. ALL MY REVITALIZED TYPEWRITERS WORK! NOT JUST SOME LIKE WITH THE OTHER GUYS. If you have any questions at all please CALL ME: 860-729-2252 ★★★

★ The Lettera series of typewriters from Italian manufacturer Olivetti were instantly the typewriter of choice of journalists worldwide. These machines had it all: European Mid Century Modern design. Super smooth and easy to use functionality. Solid, durable construction. Low profile stature for portability and space saving storage.

Marcello Nizzoli was the genius behind the design while journalist users like Indro Montanelli solidified the typewriter's iconic status. Even to this day award winning journalist Giovanni Mura uses his Olivetti Lettera 32 for all his writing. These typewriters can also be found in countless museums' permanent collections.

The example listed here is finished in Olivetti's trademark teal color. It also has that one red key for pop! It works flawlessly is in Near Mint cosmetic condition!

Why buy from me:

Each revitalized typewriter comes with a new platen so you can enjoy it for decades of worry free service (no one else offers this). Old platens get hard and can chip, crack or even damage the typebars.

You get two new, all-black ribbons of which one will be installed just prior to shipment.

Economy postage within the US is included in the purchase price.

I use a new double-wall box and new packing materials for each typewriter (no used mattress foam or funky old boxes from me).

Each revitalized typewriter is completely taken apart and cleaned of any old eraser shavings, cobwebs and dust. It is then reassembled, lubed, tuned and tested so a "turn-key" typewriter arrives at your doorstep. Simply unpack and type!

Me and my typewriters have been featured in the NY Times, Wall Street Journal, NBC, CBS, NPR and several other media outlets. I've also exhibited my collection publicly at nationally galleries... I know typewriters.

Get inspired and write something!

★ I'm always looking to buy rare or interesting typewriters and typewriter related items such as large format posters, neon clocks, sign, etc... I'm also interested in buying large collections.

★ I love typewriters! The clickety-clack of the type bars and the ding of a bell is like a symphony. Watching the springs and levers react with each keystroke is performance art. These old machines arouse and assault the senses whether they are on display or in action.
