An Essay on Typography
Eric Gill, translated by Rustam Gabbasov
The prominent and scandalous artist, sculptor, stone carver and typographer Eric Gill (1882–1940) shares his opinions on a wide range of subjects. He discusses the tail of the letter ‘Q’, rolls through criticism of industrialization and ends with the agonies on Golgotha. This edition («Эссе о типографике») closely reconstructs the design, typography and typeface of the first edition (Hague & Gill private press, 1931), which was handset by Eric Gill’s son-in-law, Rene Hague, using the master’s typeface, Joanna.
