Thanks to Thomas Gravemaker for sending in these photographs that he took on a visit to the Stempel Type Foundry, Darmstadt, Germany.
Thomas said: "The photographs were taken on my visit to the Stempel Foundry in Darmstadt, Germany. They're housed in the Haus fur Industriekultur, where they have a fantastic working museum, presses, type, A complete range of Linotypes (from the earliest ones to the latest versions) and some Monotype material as well.
Stempel is run by M. Gerstenberg, who still supplies the world with brand new foundry type, using the matrices of Stempel, Deberny & Peignot, Nebiolo and Haas.
