The Valentine typewriter made by Olivetti was better known in Italy as the portable red, because of its charateristic colour. Originally it was produced also in white in Italy only , in green Germany and in blue France. Colours which now are almost extremely rare. It was launched in and it was one of the most important industrial design icons. Valentine was portable and this was its main charateristic. In the previous typewriters, the box was detached or not present. In Valentine the typewriter became the box.
Designed by Italian Ettore Sottsass and Briton Perry King, and launched in , this was probably the most famous of Olivetti's typewriters. Shown here in its signature bright red it, it was also produced in white, egg yellow, blue and pea green. It came with a slide-on case that ingeniously fastens to the back plate of the typewriter with rubber straps. Unfortunately, over time these would often dry out, crack, and break off. This example still has them intact, but given it's age, it's not a good idea to rely on them to carry it around! The bright orange caps of the ribbon reels perk up the actual mechanism, something which in other typewriters is typically hidden from view. Overall it's a very simple shape - an extruded rounded rectangle sliced at an angle where the keyboard is. The front bar appears to float in the air just below the front row of keys.

She was masterful at hiding the cuts and bruises with clothing. Submit a new text post.
