Valentine || a typewriter
A friend recently gave me a card with a typed note inside, it started a typewriter buying frenzy. I loved the card so much that it inspired me to buy my very own typewriter from eBay. The only choice that was appropriate was an Olivetti VALENTINE typewriter to match my last name. Some interesting facts about this type writer:
- The only typewriter in the MOMA [NY] permanent collection.
- The Valentine S model doesn’t have a number one key.
- Designed in 1969.
- It was the”anti-machine machine,” for use “anyplace but an office”.
- Wright auction house has sold some for some crazy $$$.
I sent a picture to my brother in Australia, guess who is also a proud owner of a Valentine typewriter? He got his for an awesome deal on eBay. Now to find where it will be kept in my new office space that is getting underway.
PS. Below are pictures of the grey version that my brother purchased.
