The Typewriter Revolution blog: June

And a few days later I received a phone call from Les Holmes of Hightown. Les told me he had built up a typewriter museum — would I be interested in coming and having a look? Because Les wanted to link his machines with the people and businesses in and around Merseyside which used them. But all linked one way or another to the good old mechanical typewriter. Of course, even before he started his museum, Les knew a thing or two about typewriters. Before he retired he was a typewriter engineer, travelling all over the area repairing different machines which for a century or more kept the wheels of commerce turning. Which makes it wonderful that Les styles his marvellous collection: Above all else though, it is a comprehensive history of the typewriter — and its place in history.

Available now Not too long ago, every town had at least one shop that sold and repaired manual typewriters. But in the cyberage, when even the verb “to type” is being replaced with the verb “to keyboard,” typewriter repair is an endangered art. I used to say “a dying art. The resurgence of interest in typewriters among creative people has led to increased business for many of the surviving shops, and some young people are learning to repair typewriters.

This page lists businesses around the world that practice the art of typewriter repair. I depend on you to help me expand and update it. Please contact me , Richard Polt, with information about people you can recommend in your part of the globe that will work on typewriters.

Thursday, May 5, Olivetti Lettera 32 Portable Manual Typewriter – Arabic There are times when I have been able to tune out completely from current goings-on, staying immersed in my little world of eclectic hobbies – typewriters, papers, pens, ink, blogging, wondering whether it is a good idea to embark on yet another sourdough starter experiment. And then there are other times like the last couple of weeks, when major world events have kept me glued to my little screen, refreshing my news feed and the websites of major news outlets.

First there was that hubbub about the “last typewriter factory” closing, which was mildly amusing. Then there was a wedding I didn’t know I cared about, but ended up following keenly and even getting misty-eyed at parts. That was the best part. Still, I’ve been meaning to post this little beauty for a while, so here we are. Besides, my post coincides neatly with Robert Messenger ‘s celebration of Olivetti’s hundred year anniversary! The week I salvaged the red Everest K2 was a very good week for me, as far as typewriter discoveries go.

The very next day, I decided to stop by my local Salvation Army and see what was new. There I discovered not one, but two Olivetti Lettera 32s!

Jun 20, Chelsea Cripps rated it it was ok I have never read a Danielle Steel novel and for some reason when I saw this in the free books bin at my local used book store I thought, “why HAVE I never read one of her books? She’s published like a billion novels, surely she has to be somewhat readable” and I took it home. It sat on my shelf for months until I found myself between books and in need of something very unchallenging and remembered it was there.

I have now read a Danielle Steel novel.
