The Typewriter Database 1962 Hermes Media 3 Serial # 3114708 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Dan Johnson: 1962 Hermes Media 3 Serial # 3114708 This one's in very nice shape, and it feels very slightly more comfortable under my fingers than its big brothers. I do miss the clever margin indicators that are on the H3Ks' paper bails.

The only issue it seems to have is that the carriage-return lever rubs against the cover, and the cover itself looks as if something heavy had fallen on it. I don't know at this point whether the lever could be adjusted or perhaps the cover re-seated slightly lower.

I have always loved typewriters along with other kinds of well-engineered tools and devices such as slide rules, calculators (particular HP), radios, cameras (particularly Nikons), and microscopes. In addition to appreciating their intrinsic beauty and utility, they represent "things that need to be figured out to be understood". That's how I first learned about computers and programming in the 1970s, by figuring things out for myself. It's activity in which I never seem to tire of engaging.

Although communities have arisen around other collection interests, typewriters have the advantage that those who use them also typically enjoy communicating through words, whether those words are about the machines themselves or their lives, hopes, dreams, or expressions of beauty. There's much to be appreciated here.
