Olivetti Valentine Typewriter Print by Emma Kelly

British Illustrator Emma Kelly has released a brand new print today and I’m kind of drooling over it. It’s of a a vintage Olivetti Valentine typewriter which was designed Sottsass with Perry A. King back in 1969 to be “anti-machine machine”. I think her interpretation of this classic is spot on and I love how her illustration feels kind of loose and hand drawn but also very technical and realistic. I think what I’m really loving is that red halftone pattern she used that fill in the work but also kind of fade outside of the lines.

To grab yourself one, or maybe for a loved one on Valentine’s Day, be sure to visit Emma’s site by clicking here.
