Arrest All Mimics Podcast: Typographic Specimens

Ben Tallon meets lecturer A. W. Bainbridge who talks about his unconventional ancestor and a fascination with typography.

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.
