About: Herbert Spencer was a British designer, editor, writer, photographer and teacher. In 1949 Spencer founded the highly influential Typographica, a design and visual arts journal which ran for 32 issues, over two series, between 1949 to 1967.

"During the 1950s and 1960s, Herbert Spencer travelled widely in Europe, taking photographs for a travel guide to Crete, a diary of wanderings in Ireland and other projects. As he went, he documented the visual characteristics peculiar to different environments – from the City of London to a Breton village. Many of these photographs were first published as collections of what Spencer called “expressive pattern” in Typographica, the magazine he founded and edited from 1949-1967. Later they were reprinted in the volume Traces of Man." (Source) www.eyemagazine.com/feature/article/traces-of-man
