Located in Bern, Switzerland.

My typewriter obsession started when I inherited my grandfather's Brother CE-25 and quickly spiralled out of control from there.

I love any technology that conveys information, from typewriters to railway split-flap displays (as seen in my avatar).



RESEARCH NOTE: When researching the Hermes 5 on a computer with lots of screen real estate, you may find that launching the Hermes Serial Number page and the Hermes 5 By Model/Year/Serial page in new browser windows can give you interesting perspectives on changes throughout the model series.
