"My typewriter is a Hermes 3000, surely one of the noblest instruments of European genius. And, ladies and gentlemen, can you believe it, it’s kept me for 30 years out of the dry embrace of the computer."

In his Golden Globe acceptance speech, Larry McMurtry, the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Lonesome Dove and Oscar-winning screenwriter of Brokeback Mountain, pays tribute to his Swiss-made typewriter!

ABOUT
The E. Paillard & Company, which manufactured music boxes in the nineteenth century, opened a factory in Yverdon, Switzerland and began production on typewriters in the 1920s, eventually releasing its first portable typewriter in 1933, the Hermes 2. It improved on the concept over the next several years with the Hermes Baby in 1935, Hermes Media in 1936, the Hermes 2000 with automatic margins in 1939, Hermes Baby Jubilee in 1940, and finally the Hermes 3000 in 1958.
Many consider the Hermes 3000 to be the best portable typewriter ever made!
