The Typewriter Database 1948 Olivetti Lexikon 80 Serial # 80499 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Steven Kuterescz: 1948 Olivetti Lexikon 80 Serial # 80499 "Hired in the late 1930s by Adriano Olivetti, Marcello Nizzoli assumed a significant role in product design after World War II. An early example was the Lexikon 80 typewriter of 1948, distinguished by its fluid, organic housing and integrated curved panel covering the mechanism, creating a sense of abstract sculptural form."

Typewriter enthusiast, Perth Western Australia. I began collecting typewriters in order to spend less time in front of a computer. Yeah, like that worked... !!
