The Pelican Podcast: Pelican Books

This May, Pelican’s back!

What was this iconically blue bird all about? What did it publish? And most importantly, why do we need it today?

We have the imprint’s editor Laura Stickney to tell us why we’re bringing back Pelican. We speak to our in-house designer Matthew Young, who has been a part of bringing Pelicans alive on the page, in bookshops and online. And finally, we fly off to the Bristol Festival of Ideas, to hear the economist Ha-Joon Chang. Enjoy.

Pelicans are now in stores around the world. Visit pelicanbooks.com to read the first chapters of the first five titles for free.
