The Musée Perrier gives a great overview not only of the history of typewriters, but equally features all other items typically found in the historic office: calculating machines, staplers, dictation machines, you name it. This makes for a complete general impression of what our offices looked like in the 20th century.
Apart from the general exhibition, Jacques periodically arranges for theme exhibitions. These days, it's Olivetti.
|The iconic ICO, and Xanti Schawinski's poster|
|The imposing and elegant Lexicon 80 electric|
|The much coveted Graphika, and yes @Richard, I looked up the serial number: 1810597|
|A beautiful blue Studio 42. We were not sure whether the feed-rollers are original.|
|The Big Three: Nizolli, Sottsass, Bellini|
|trompe-l'oeuil: not the real typewriter, but the arsenic theater's original program for the season 03/04|
I always find it interesting to see a succession of models side by side. Here is the evolution of the Olivetti portable:
And no post shall be complete without a Hermes Baby. Here is the rather rare green variant:
Many thanks to Jacques, and wishing you all a good typewriter day! shordzi
