This website is dedicated to one person’s obsession with the Hammond typewriter, its founder James Hammond, and everything else in his world.

The machine itself is fascinating, able to type in many languages and fonts, using a unique printing method. Better machines came after the Hammond but despite its faults, it is one of the most interesting things I have ever seen.

What really hooked me was the story of its inventor, James Bartlett Hammond. An amazing individual that time has somehow forgotten, yet his invention endures and is beloved by many.

As this is the work of one person the information may not be complete, and some things may be missing, but it continues to grow so check back often. Any questions or suggestions feel free to contact.
