Mark Ovenden - Johnston & Gill: Very British Types

Mark Ovenden’s book celebrates Britain’s visual

culture by investigating two seminal typefaces

and their creators. This event commemorates

the centenary of Johnston’s lettering for London

Transport (‘London’s Handwriting’), and the

90th anniversary of Gill Sans, the undisputed

corporate typeface of many modern British

establishments. Mark’s talk will be accompanied

by an exhibition of the Gill Sans printing types in

the collection of Leicester Print Workshop.
