Just today I got the message that the Typemuseum, or TypeArchyve in London UK will be closed down.

The owner of the buildings where the museum is located, has some plans to demolish all buildings, en replace it with a tower-building with luxury houses.

What is going to happen with all the old machines and provision ? They will be stored somewhere. No way to order something anymore.

Oh holy bloody hell! Landlordosis at its worst. Makes me wish for an old factory building to house all that.
