Gill Sans is a classic sans-serif typeface designed by Eric Gill. It is a solid and versatile typeface, but is often misused and misunderstood. The idea was to promote Gill Sans as a classic typeface that's also surprisingly modern. This booklet presents the typeface as a bold and quirky personality that is original and stands out in the crowd. Highlighting its history, structural characteristics, weights and usage, the booklet attempts to help designers use the typeface better and to their best advantage.
