Olivetti Horses  

Posted by Mariano in , , , , ,

It comes as no surprise that the great literary genius of our day, Cormac McCarthy, wrote most of his novels on the same Olivetti Lettera 32. According to a New York Times article, McCarthy was recently gifted a new typewriter and will give his old one to Christie's to be auctioned off for charity. They expect between $15,000 and $20,000.
Alas, there's no money from young men like me to snatch that piece of history and perhaps even put a few of my own words on the same ribbon, next to his. Or pehaps one day my Olympia DeLuxe or my Hermes 3000 will sit on some collector's shelf next to the prominant Olivetti Lettera 32. Hey, a guy can dream right?
