Bought some neat film cases from JapanCameraHunter; wrapped in newspapers. The characters are unreadable; but I know a typewriter when I see one. Was going to say it could be a Royal KMG , but I have learned my lesson!

This vintage comic pic of a guy getting clocked by a desk top–OW–led to a clear-eyed, cutting essay by author Claire Vaye Watkins about the writing world shaped mostly by white men, and its effects on a woman navigating it.
Incredible PELOTON story of an Italian reporter and his Olivetti Lettera 32 at the Tour de Frace, still a team after decades of covering cycling and other sports.
Great writing and soulful pictures for Peloton by photojournalist James Startt. Tomorrow I am going to write something about this great race on my Lettera 32; so inspiring! The Lettera 32 was always a favorite for on-the-scene reporting; there are great shots of it being used in Vietnam, and ringside at some of the greatest Ali fights. ICYMI — here is a boss NYT story about James Startt and how he covers the world’s longest sporting event. Great stuff. Thanks, Gianni and James for getting out there and bringing the race stories to us.
