Engraved Letters by Eric Gill



As well as being the inventor of Gill Sans and Perpetua, Eric Gill was a prolific wood engraver. The letters on this page, engraved in 1923, were intended perhaps for use in a book. View this and other wood engravings by the artist at Tate Britain, by appointment.

Or, if you're in Los Angeles between now and March, you could go along to the exhibition 'Eric Gill: Iconographer' at the Laband Art Gallery, Loyola Marymount University.

  1. So fine. We lived in Ditchling and were friends with the Pepler family and Gill descendants, who have these on their walls.

  2. Thanks, Daydream Believer - I'd be fascinated to hear more about this, I'm very ignorant about Ditchling
