Please see the description for photos and additional details. Vintage Ettore Sottsass Olivetti Valentine Typewriter Seen in Umbrella Academy. It is appealing, desirable and highly collectible. We present this item exactly how it was when acquired.
The photos are an accurate depiction of the condition. Designed by the late Ettore Sottsass with the British designer Perry King for Italian firm Olivetti, the Valentine typewriter was launched in 1969. Forty years on it is still in demand among collectors world wide. Most museums with a design collection own a Valentine typewriter as an example of pop design. Sottsass once said: When I was young, all we ever heard about was functionalism, functionalism, functionalism. Design should also be sensual and exciting.

With the Valentine typewriter he achieved that, introducing his love for pop aesthetics into contemporary design. The typewriter's smooth, sumptuous lines and the punchy colors of its ABS plastic introduced a measure of fun and humor to an area that had long taken itself too seriously: the office. This was no typewriter for the efficient secretary, it was a tool for individualized talents and improvised performance.

This typewriter was also featured in an episode of the Umbrella Academy, when Vanya/Number Seven was typing her family biography. This typewriter is in wonderful condition. It types smoothly, but the ribbon does need replacing, which can easily be found online. There are a few scuffs on the case, as shown in the photos. I have down loaded the instruction manual which is included. It can be found at Mass Made Soul website.
