the book itself is about turing’s life in manchester, the friends he met while living there, and also how he was persecuted for being a gay man.

univers, in a range of different weights, was used as a reference to turing’s scientific background and justified for ease of reading.

the book features images from the period in which turing lived in manchester, and also his work notes, including his working out of the fibonacci sequence, amid splashes of terracotta pages to reflect the red brick buildings of manchester.
