Alphabets and Numerals - one of three plaques

Artist: Eric Gill

Title: Alphabets and Numerals



From the exhibit information card:


Gill carved these for a book, Manuscript and Inscription Letters for Schools and Classes and for Use of Craftsman, compiled by his former teacher, Edward Johnston. He later gave them to the V&A so they could be used by students of the Royal College of Art. Gill's typography, which included his own font, Gill Sans, was highly influential.
