The Typewriter Database 1963 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3196300 From the Virtual Typewriter Collection of Linda Au: 1963 Hermes 3000 Serial # 3196300 I bought this on Nov. 19, 2016, from a friend and fellow writer (at a type-in, typewriter sale, and beer exchange here in western Pennsylvania).

Had wanted a Hermes 3000 for a while (since seeing my first photo of one), and there were TWO for sale at this type-in.

Elite typeface.

Looking forward to using this beauty for letters and other correspondence.

Humorist. Novelist. Scapegoat.

I'm happy to own 13 typewriters currently. Two are models from my childhood: a Royal Signet portable (my first typewriter when I was about 10), and an Underwood TM-5 (used in 9th grade typing class circa 1975).

I use my IBM Selectric II to win NaNoWriMo every year now and LOVE it. I also use my Selectric I a lot since it fits perfectly on my antique typewriter desk. Some of the manuals are currently being used to type letters to new penpals who are all interested in reviving snail-mail letter writing.
