Eric Gill (1882–1940) was an English sculptor, stonemason, typographer, and printmaker. He was also a controversial figure whose fascination with erotica and sex were at odds with his deep religious beliefs. Among his many enduring artistic achievements are the typefaces Gill Sans, Perpetua, and Joanna; the group of sculptures Prospero and Ariel for BBC Broadcasting House; numerous World War I memorials; and a vast array of illustrations for the private Golden Cockerel Press.
Originally published in 1940, this autobiography offers an intimate look at Gill’s life, work, and highly recognizable style.
Eric Gill spent his formative years in Brighton and Chichester before a period of study in London. He later moved to Ditchling in Sussex where he set up an artistic community.
