  3. Ah, I can only take partial credit for drawing a letterbox in a circle and colouring them in. The rest goes to Mr Gill for the typeface (I know!, it is not heavy enough for London Underground but I'm blowed if I can locate my full set of Gill Sans weights).

    1. Eric Gill led an 'interesting' life, if "Just My Type" is to be believed.

    2. He was quite a lad, yes. He made another really lovely book typeface which he named after his daughter, Johanna.

  4. Brilliant! I'll add this graphic to the announcement on typosphere.net.

    And by the way, I really am enjoying living this month in an atmosphere full of Gill Sans instead of Helvetica.

  6. You should arrange some undertakers to supervise the event, in case anyone ends up dying of bliss due to the exquisite combination of typewriters with beer.
