new illustrated introduction to Eric Gill
The British Museum Press is delighted to announce the forthcoming title
Eric Gill: Lust for Letter and Line
This beautifully illustrated introduction explores Gill’s genius as a letter-cutter, wood engraver, sculptor and typographer- as well as his status as one of the twentieth century’s most controversial artists.
For Gill ‘it all went together’: letters and sculpture; religion and sex; book illustration and type-design; politics and art, and this intriguing book offers insight into every aspect of Eric Gill, from his radical attitudes to politics and sex, to his enduring impact upon British art and design, illuminating the quality, complexities and contradictions of his life and work.
