Calepino — a lingering thought explored in each issue

The Calepino is a deep dive into a lingering thought or worry (described as a ‘calepino’ in Italian dialect). Each issue tackles a singular obsession in an unusual way that only comes from thinking about something for much too long.

Issue 01: The Merman

We’ve been thinking about merman specimens ever since we saw our first one over two decades ago. The inaugural issue of The Calepino explores the history and mystery of mermen in general and the Banff Merman specifically, one of the finest specimens on display today.
