This beauty is available now on eBay for a mere $675.
Ettore Sottsass designed the Valentine typewriter (with Perry A. King) for Olivetti in 1969 to be an “anti-machine machine,” for use “anyplace but an office.” Good luck finding a ribbon for it. This was more of a fashion accessory than a hard working office tool. You can definitely picture Joan Halloway rocking one of these babies.
Olivetti is one of the last typewriter manufacturers still in business.
