LETTERA 12

Posted on October 10, 2013 by Isabella Cecconi

This post is personally dedicated to my Lettera 12. It is my personal wiz-bang typer. A later variant of Olivetti’s Lettera 10, it is smaller than it might appear. Colorful,  featherweight, its body is made of cast-injected ABS polymer casing, maybe the lightest of the Olivetti’s typewriters. Portable I might say. Made in Spain in the 70’s, it is,  to me, a pretty looking piece. I like the sleek futuristic styling, the sharp corners, its colors (there are many variants, from lime to orange). It seems to be a toy but instead it’s a great addition (and really elevates) someone’s Olivetti collection. Stop using your Mac, go back to Olivetti!
