The typeface was designed by Eric Gill for the Monotype Corporation. It is an eye catching font that religiously follows principles established by Edward Johnston.
The typeface was also the first sanserif of its kind to be distributed broadly. The font has a unique look and fits well into a variety of writing styles.
