MyFonts Nabs Exclusive Interview With Typemaster Eric Gill

2004.After years of seculsion, one of the great masters of the art of type, Eric Gill, has consented to interview, and has given one to the fine folks at MyFonts:
Eric Gill has never been easy to pigeonhole: a socialist Catholic, a spiritually minded family man, a keen and active admirer of female and typographic curves alike. For many decades, Gill — a stonecarver, graphic artist, type designer and writer — has been one of the most fascinating figures on the British design scene (although, as he explains in his own inimitable style, he is not particularly fond of "design").
Read alla boutit here.

A man of complexity, he speaks frankly about his art and about design.
