As a sculptor, engraver, and stone-carver, Gill turned his attention to designing a number of typefaces. Perpetua (1925) which was based on the classic proportions and characteristics of the Trajan column. Gill Sans (1928 – 1930), a sans-serif typeface, which was used by many including the Church of England, the BBC, and the first Penguin book jackets. Solus (1929), an Egyptian inspired typeface. Joanna (1930-1931), a serif typeface named after Gill’s daughter. Golden Cockerel (1930), not a publicly released typeface and only used for the GC Press. Aries (1932), designed specifically for the Stourton Press. Jubilee (1934), a calligraphic typeface originally called Cunard. And finally Bunyan (1934), which was later recut for machine use and renamed Pilgrim in 1953. This edition of Sterne’s A Sentimental Journey is printed in Gill’s Bunyan, and contains illustrations by Denis Tegetmeier, Gill’s son-in-law.
