Each chapter of Dr. Boli’s Complete and Utter History of the World has been written on one of a large number of typewriters Dr. Boli keeps for the purpose. Dr. Boli ordinarily sticks to his steel pens, but the typewriter seems to encourage the brisker and more utilitarian style demanded by readers of serious historical works. Below, a page written on a Hermes 3000 typewriter with an unusually attractive script face.



  1. More Dread than says:

    Does Dr. Boli’s editor edit Trader Joe’s “Fearless Flier,” the flier that is “always free and always worth every penny”? Or is Trader Joe a knock-off imitation for the upper-middle class?

    Boli for the proletariat!

  2. Clay Potts says:

    Dear Dr. Boli,

    I very much agree, the Hermes 3000 typewriter does produce the most unusually attractive script face! However, I think you be even more pleased with this typewriter if you match it with the appropriate typing stationery for its delicate keystrokes.

    The Bousted & Son Stationary Store on Wood St have begun carrying the most delightful variety of typewriter stationery to match and even enhance the presentation of nearly every model of typewriter and typist. And, there is the most competent young man in their employ who will provide you with the most excellent service and a product at the best price.

    Best wishes,

    H.C. Frick, XXIII
