Ep 107: Typographic specimens. The creatures made of type, an adventure at sea & Charles Darwin
On the surface, Typographic Specimens is a collection of extraordinary creatures made entirely out of letterforms, numerals and punctuation marks. But behind this beautiful book is a fascinating tale of the Reverend Jackson Whitehead and his adventure aboard the HMS Pica, sister ship to HMS Beagle, which famously carried one Charles Darwin.
I'm joined by A.W. Bainbridge, a lecturer in Graphic Communications and Creative Thinking at the University of Central Lancashire, who details the story of his eccentric ancestor.
The book is available now via Ammonite Press.
