Hello and happy new year :)
The 2011 started at full steam with a lot of things to do and new exciting engagements. As promised I limited my recent purchases to very special typewriters. What is very special in my book is mostly related to design and typeface. I receive a fantastic red olivetti valentine for Xmas and by total chance (you know how this happens) I found another one that I couldn't let go so easily: a Valentine in its original box.
With the various holidays it arrived today and for your enjoyment here are the unboxing photos. If you are an attentive observer you can see that the color of this Valentine is not the same of my Xmas one. The Xmas one is really red and this is more of an orange - lighter. Too bad I didn't take a picture with both (perhaps next time) but this is proven by the fact that the two Valentine were from different plans. This new one was made in Mexico and has a German Keyboard. The Xmas one was made in Spain and has a Swiss German keyboard layout. The only thing to be the same is the typeface but my third (and hopefully last) Valentine is on its way with a very different and unique typeface ! :)
Enjoy the Photos.
