QuoteSad news about the Type Archive in London. They are leaving their premises in Stockwell, and with nowhere else to go, the collections are reverting to the Science Museum and Victoria & Albert Museum. In practice, the Monotype material will move to the Science Museum storage at Swindon. The future of Monotype Hot Metal, and their supply of new matrices and Monotype parts is very uncertain. The Stephenson Blake collection will also temporarily go to Swindon, but the future of the Delittle wood type collection is less certain, as is the future of the various printing presses, etc. held by the Archive.I am not sure how easy it will be to access material at Swindon, where everything is housed in old aircraft hangers, many of which are not in the best of health. And it is not clear whether the Monotype equipment will be held in working order, or just stored. We shall see.David BoltonThe Alembic Press
