Typewriter lust

My typewriter lust has been awakened again, this time for one of these Ettore Sottsass Valentine typewriters for Olivetti, designed in 1969. There's not a hint of red, or ever likely to be, in my subtle, sludge-coloured house, but for this, I'd make an exception. There are a couple on E-bay at the minute, but what I need is my very own Valentine to do the purchasing on my behalf.

That is so funny- had no idea you posted in Sept re: typewriters also, same one too- and orange! We are on the same page...I am sure if we met we would be very good friends.
