Another blog about typewriters and the joys of using and collecting them.
That looks like a nice place!
Looks really comfy.
Duck's Cottage looks like a treat! Hopefully you enjoyed your stay, it's good to have a change of scenery every once in a while. Even if it just means that you love your home even more when returning! No desks... it just seems silly...
Yeah looks like a cool kind of place that I'd also latch on to. Hope you had a good and restful respite. I admit that I've never typed on a 50's Hermes 3000, but a friend has, and I cleaned up for her a 60-70's Hermes 3000. All plastic and supremely mediocre and uninspired. She offered it to me if I found her a 50's Remington Quiet Riter (which is what she had in her youth). Well I did find a Quiet Riter, but I don't want to give it to her because I don't even want the Hermes. So, I agree, the Royal QDL, Arrow, even Keystone and Companions are about the best american portables for your $$! Cheers!
Great video. I watched it on WDBJs site the link on the blog did not play.I think I put my Hermes comment on your older post from the Outer Banks.I chose a Baby for size to take on my trip. I doubt I will ever take it again. Only a Skyriter; a much better machine.
The link seems to be working. I just renamed the link so it will be more clear... the photo was not the link.I have little experience with Skywriters. I usually take an Olivetti on my travels if I need something small.
