Eric Gill picture taken 1933

This comes from my copy of The Monotype Recorder, a magazine published by the Monotype Corporation, of Winter 1933. It is sub-titled ‘Modern Typography Number’

It shows Gill standing in front of the Flying Scotsman steam train. Enjoy.

(I would love to know whatever happened to Mr C.G.G. Dandridge, the advertising manager, seen right, who ‘initiated the reform’ [of the typefaces] – how did he know Gill? Was he a visionary in his own right?)
