It seeems that it gets harder and harder to find a working typewriter, or at least one which has not been destroyed by the postal service.
This is one of the few fortunate machines which has survived the tortuous journey in the last six months. Not only itÂ´s undamaged, but also has a still surviving ribbon and includes the user manual. And something weird: green platen. Is it purely aesthetical or does it have any kind of function?
What remains unchanged is how nice this typewriter is. At last IÂ´ve managed to fish a fully working Hermes (after 2 Babies, a 3000, a Media and a 9, that is). These mid-sized beasts from the 50Â´s and 60Â´s are true beasts of typing!
In addition, I can pack a lot of writing in a single sheet of paper with this tiny little elite sized typeface.
The "worst" part is the French keyboard, but IÂ´m getting used to it. Nothing wrong in going a bit slower, right?

The first typewriter I saw was my grandpaÂ´s Olivetti Linea 98 at the office. It was just a curio for me. Then I was given a Nakajima, which I didnÂ´t use and my grandfather took it from me because it was easier to handle than the bulky Linea 98. Now I own that typewriter, and I started a little collection in Valladolid, Spain. The Nakajima, which is "my" typewriter only returned home in 2017, almost 20 years later, when he wanted a better typewriter.
A collection that started small grew into something bigger, a nuisace for my family and a great source of satisfaction for me.
