Notes
An advertisement of Olivetti’s typefaces for typewriting machines. The type lines are placed on a series of paper stripes thus suggesting the linear layout typical of typewriting. The hand on the background effectively suggests the idea of picking up one of the type styles. (N.B. The project is sometime attributed to Giovanni Pintori.)
