1950s Hermes Baby

Serial #unknown

Lightweight and quite portable, the Hermes Baby should be a decent laptop typewriter if it were in better condition than the one I had. Still a memorable machine for me because it was my first foray into repairing a typewriter... and it was a success story (see my blog post). I said goodbye to the Baby soon after, I gave it to a friend.

In a parallel universe, I was once the Senior Vice-President of Design (Typewriter Division) at Ing. C. Olivetti & C.,S.p.A., Ivrea, Italy. In the real universe, I'm a Chicago-based casual collector and hunter of Olivetti typewriters, and related ephemera, publications, and film sightings.
