1935 Olivetti MP1 Ico

Serial #20548

Olivetti Modelo Portatile 1, Ingegnere Camilo Olivetti (Ico). Designed by Aldo Magnieli, the Ico is considered by many- myself included -as the most beautiful typewriter ever produced.

It's got an elegant typing feel that is almost devoid of resistance. "Too elegant," according to two of my friends.

This stunner came from the Richard Polt collection. It was sold by the Ferdinand Schrey Company in Vienna, Austria.

In a parallel universe, I was once the Senior Vice-President of Design (Typewriter Division) at Ing. C. Olivetti & C.,S.p.A., Ivrea, Italy. In the real universe, I'm a Chicago-based casual collector and hunter of Olivetti typewriters, and related ephemera, publications, and film sightings.
