PHOTŒIL

This is a book about the typewriters collection of the famous Dutch novelist W.F. Hermans (01 September 1921 — 27 April 1995).

He considered the typewriter as "the sweetest machine ever invented". A rather obvious statement coming from a writer, I guess…

It's amazing to see how this technology has evolved, the creativity in finding solutions to improve the mechanics by the inventors! Some of these pure utilitarian machines are true jewels. I was astonished by their beauty.

Those who are interested in this small but very nice collection, can admire it in the 'Hermanskamer' of the LIMERICK bookshop in Ghent (Belgium) look here: W.F.Hermans
