Gill Sans

Gill Sans took much inspiration from Johnston Underground, the typeface designed for the London Underground.

The Gill Sans was reproduced for the first time by hand in 1926, for the sign of a Bristol bookstore.

One of the most famous uses of Gill Sans, the covers of Penguin Books.

Despite being a linear character, Gill Sans retains the warmth of classical Roman letters.

During the 90s, Gill Sans has been chosen by BBC as official typeface.

In Italy the Gill Sans was used, among others, by Benetton, Mediaset and De Agostini.
