valentine for christmas

"Now I'm hunched over a typewriter, I guess thats what you call painting in a cave."
-Conor Oberst

My parents surprised me with this typewriter for christmas.
The Olivetti Valentine was designed by Ettore Sottsass in 1970.
I love it, even though I live on an island and couldn't bring it with me. Someday I will live in a cute house with a desk of my own and I will put this beauty front and center.

for now I will use my mac book, so humdrum.

oh! So practical.
