We are also glad to say that Jeremy Bentham’s Prison Cooking: A Collection of Utilitarian Recipes – based in large part on manuscripts transcribed by TB volunteers – is now available to buy from UCL’s Online Store for the bargain price of £9.99 (plus postage). Bentham Cover final 28/7/15.inddWe are hugely grateful to the team who produced the cookbook – Alysha Owen, DeAndra Lupu, Jennifer Timmins, Joanna O’Neill, Katarzyna Gambus, and Toluwalase Ogundipe – as part of their MA in Publishing studies here at UCL. The book is a beautiful production, and a real tribute to their hard work.

As always, we are hugely grateful to everyone who has contributed to Transcribe Bentham during the last seven days. It remains as greatly appreciated as always.
