  5. Lovely photos and an interesting insight. The 30 years between these wasn't wasted. Even though I never typed on either sort, I'd like to bet the later model works better.

    1. The type feeling is very different on the two models. The one Hermes Baby I prefer is a middle generation not featured here: it's the 1954 edition, still in solid material, but with very much improved type-action which makes touch-typing possible. The early Babys are perfect for the "Eagle technique", i.e. two max. three fingers, but because of the peculiar angle of the keys not suited for touch-typing.
