Mi máquina amarilla

  1. ¡Ohlala, que hermosa máquina, Ricardo!

    So this was your Hispano Olivetti find. I've seen black (of course), taupe, and red but not that beautiful mustard yellow. Looks to be in tip-top shape too. Congratulations!

  6. I really like how the ribbon cover opens. That alone makes me want one of these. It's like an old sports car.

  7. I was already coveting a Studio 42. That is a beautiful, typewriter lust inspiring machine.

  9. Funny that they called it a Studio 46; I immediately thought that was a typo! Great color; indeed, I haven't seen another like it.

  10. Olé! -- And another cool ribbon-cover design.

    (Hey, how on earth do you take such nice pictures? Do you have a studio set up for that? You could be a product photographer.)

    1. Thanks! I usually set up the typewriter on a piece of white poster board and shoot in indirect natural light. Then I photoshop the picture -- usually it needs brightening, sometimes the color needs tweaking, and I erase any background that the poster board didn't cover up.

  11. Thanks Richard for your wonderful words, I was sure that this machine was going to another great collection as yours, your friend Juan Ramon Gracia

  12. A saw a Studio 42 (regular, not Hispano) in the same colour some time ago, but it's really rare to find those.
