this was how my obsession with typewriters begun, my first love, a red oliveti dora.
i met up a seller to buy an old red suitcase but ended up buying another suitcase and this tappy. i was attracted to her colour and deal was almost immediately sealed after i typed a few random words on it ( didnt know what ‘ a quick brown dog jumps over the lazy dog’ was all about at that time).
she was originally in drabby grey colour, seller repainted it to red.
after her, there will be another 20++ that found their way to my home, or shall i say – i saw, i liked, i cannot resist, i bought ! (and there are still just a couple more under my wish list). 😛
