UrbanOutfitters is selling Olivettis

16650962_01_f.jpeg > Olivetti Manual Typewriter - Black:
There's nothing like the resounding "click" of an old-fashioned typewriter. Live out all of your next-great-writer fantasies with this classic travel machine from Olivetti, the 100 year-old Italian manufacturer favored by authors from Sylvia Plath to Stephen King. Features include: 49 keys with 86 symbols; margin stop with 8 stop tab keys; Space Bar with Repeater key; variable line space; paper and carriage release lever; ribbon color selector switch; black plastic housing and carrying case for secure transporting.

(Via Tomorrow Museum, who calls it "nostalgia tech". The less-creative counterpart to retronovation.)
