Groma Kolibri

I have several ultraportables: a Hermes Rocket, an Olivetti Lettera 22 and a Smith-Corona Skyriter. These are beautifully designed machines that can hold their own against beefier portables. But none have a design as striking as my Groma Kolibri. Another blogger remarked that this is the iMac of the typewriter world: it’s remarkably slim. But what takes your breath away is its unique, sleek design, which defies categorization. I find beauty in every typewriter I own, but none is as stunning as this one. It was made in Germany, but it has the “USSR” stamp on the back.
