Olivetti Lettera 12

Italian design at its best! Designed in 1978 by Olivetti designer Mario Belinni, the Lettera 10 (and later the Lettera 12) was the first typewriter to ditch ribbon spools, using a cart8mm wide cloth tape. Much easier to use, but with the drawback that the cartucho patented (Lettercart) needed to be purchased by sepplow.
