A touch typing course on vinyl record. Pressed by the Olivetti Underwood typewriter company, this LP teaches the student how to type like a professional on what was then, a typewriter. Typewriters may have come and gone but the keyboard has changed little and good typing, according to this record, should be as "automatic as driving a car". Neat and sleek graphic design on the LP sleeve and paper insert remind typewriter collectors and enthusiasts why Olivetti and Underwood are still considered among the giants of product design.
