Wiki: Herman the Hippocampus


Herman the Hippocampus is a recurring mascot and half-horse/half-fish character throughout Ackerly Green Publishing.


Herman was first seen in Deirdre Green’s blog post ‘Up all night and down the rabbit hole,’ as a pile of sketches for potential Ackerly Green Publishing logos. Deirdre noted that the sketches were signed by Sylvia Green, her grandmother.

According to Eaves, in a response to the blog post, Herman was originally the logo for the Lost Collection.

A necklace featuring Herman appeared in the blog post, ‘What to Do,’ and a Herman plushie appeared in ‘Upstate of Mind.’
