Beautiful type…..


Is the Olivetti Valentine the most beautiful typewriter in the world? Lipstick red and functional, it was designed in 1969 by the British designer Perry King and has undoubtedly stood the test of time. Perry later dismissed it likening it to “a girl wearing a very short skirt and too much make-up” but it became a cult object…

Lightweight and font flexible, the Valentine has become a collectors’ item in recent times.
