The Vintage Typewriter Shoppe: Hermes Rocket

The Vintage Typewriter Shoppe: Hermes Rocket

Whenever I see a manual typewriter, I am reminded of the Luddite boyfriend in "You've Got Mail" who had a jones for typewriters. But he was on to something: the clack of the keys, the reliability of the technology, the imperfection of the end result - all romantic and somehow much more reminiscent of the writing life than a laptop (okay, Carrie Bradshaw aside.) I would love to have own one (and this one in particular) for back-up plan and conversation piece.
