1975 Hermes 3000

Serial #7416737

Purchased on eBay a long time ago for $29. I didn't know it had a cool typeface until I got it. It's a good machine, but not great, and the plastic body causes it to be a lot less rigid than its predecessors. This machine was made in Hungary.

I got a green ribbon because I wanted a green ribbon and I thought for a long time about which machine to put it on. This one needed some color. I named it TK-421 at the suggestion of Ted Munk actually because my friends and I agree it looks like a storm trooper.

I am an aspiring novelist and avid typewriter enthusiast from the New River Valley in Virginia. I am a proud Virginia Tech graduate with an education in creative writing. I use typewriters for all my writing and am working on a novel. I also do street poetry. I often can be found writing on one of my machines in downtown Blacksburg and enjoying a drink.
