We have featured the design before. Indeed, we've even featured a poster of it. But if you want to own a classic 1969 Olivetti Valentine typewriter by Ettore Sottsass, a model as good as any is on eBay right now.

You could say it's a space age twist on a (then) functional item, coming in its own matching plastic carry case and with this model, the plastic boxed cleaning brushes and the original instruction booklet too. Which is rare to find.

It's described as being in 'full working condition', but with 'some traces of very light wear comensurate with age'. Nothing to worry about in other words. Bids already placed, so right now it's at £77.
