Another incredible picture, from Flickr, of a huge row of linecasters, stretching as far as the eye can see!

I've asked the poster of the pic if he can give me further details of what's going on, but I'm still waiting for a reply.

I would hazzard a guess that this isn't a museum.

I couldn't resist this picture.

I'm presuming it's from the same building, casting founder's type.

I must go to Germany for my holidays next year!

Many thanks to Ludwig, from the Letpress list, for supplying the following details:

QuoteThat is in Darmstadt, Germany, Haus der Industriekultur, a Museum 
which also houses the Stempel Typefoundry, a active Foundry under the

I'm pleased to say that I have tracked down some pictures of the Stempel Type Foundry and added them to the main site:

Many thanks to Thomas Gravemaker for sending them in.
