Finally, and two weeks latter, I present you my orange Hermes Baby!
I've cleaned it a bit harder than what was needed and that almost costed me the Hermes logo...
I believe there isn't much to say about this typewriter. All that is to say has already been said. This is a rather common and much heralded machine.
The poor lighting conditions resulted in this strange effect! I also believe this unit was made in Brazil… Honestly my fist contact with the Baby was rather disappointing. Too much plastic and too fragile. Although it's a very handy machine, ultra light and super portable. In case of damage it's easy to repair, find spare parts or even find an other to replace it.
This time I've left my comfort zone with the qwertz keyboards. I took the chance and got a portuguese azerty keyboard. Although I haven't managed to get used to the hcesar, this time the adaptation process was quite easy. With exception of the "M" that changed its place with the "Ç"...
About the typing it self… There's nothing to point. It's very fluid and light. Very pleasant to use.
It's again an Elite. I haven't got lucky yet. I'm still searching for a typewriter with Cursiva or Techno font.
And that's all for now :)
