  1. Couldn't agree more. As my blog background suggests, the L22 is one of the very best in the business as far as I'm concerned.

  2. A Lettera 22 rests on the backseat of my car as we type, waiting to go new places and see new things!

  3. Nice videos. One day I hope to add some Olivetti typewriters to my herd.
    That sure is a nice Lettera 22.

    Happy Typewriter Day!

  4. Maybe I'd better start looking for a Lettera 22...

  5. Happy T-day, Ton! I agree, the Letteras are fantastic machines, though I'm personally more inclined to my 32 because it has the added privilege of being "The" typewriter that started my collection. But hey, the 32 and the 22 are very similar and closely related, right?

    Happy typing!

  7. Great post. I like the videos. I just ventured from my beloved Smith-Coronas into the world of Remington. Maybe someday I'll add an Olivetti to the collection.

  9. Happy late Typewriter Day! I also like my early L22. It is such a solid, little machine.

  10. Happy T+8! I found a '69 L32 for $10 about three months ago. It's perfect with the exception of a rusty case interior and the ribbon advance needs an occasional helping hand. I picked up an L22 for parts for $22, but they are not interchangeable. Without the broken body and missing ribbon cover, this ends up being a sweet little machine. My kids call it Robotyper, but I like the name Skelettera. When it comes to writing Olivetti's are my favorite portables by thus far, but I've not yet had a chance to use an Olympia. :)
