Have yourself an Olivetti Christmas...




A merry & meaningful Christmas, everyone!

* Original UPI News Photo: "The Big Classroom," 1964 (Aminatou, a 17-year-old schoolgirl preparing for a career in social work, does her homework on an Olivetti Lettera 22). Many thanks to photographer Ping Amranand for alerting me to the ebay listing, I now own the photo.

    What a wonderful year this has been, having had the chance to be part of the Typosphere. May we all can continue typing (and typecasting) for many years to come!

      Sorry I missed seeing you and the rest at the Bay Area type-in. I visit Berkeley with some regularity so I hope there will be a next time. Cheers.
