An Essay On Typography by Eric Gill.

An Essay on Typography was first published in 1931, instantly recognized as a classic, and has long been unavailable. It represents Gill at his best opinionated, fustian, and consistently humane. It is his only major work on typography and remains indispensable for anyone interested in the art of letter forms and the presentation of graphic information.

This manifesto, however, is not only about letters their form, fit, and function but also about man’s role in an industrial society. As Gill wrote later, it was his chief object “to describe two worlds that of industrialism and that of the human workman & to define their limits.”

His thinking about type is still provocative. Here are the seeds of modern advertising unjustified lines, tight word and letter spacing, ample leading. Here, too, is vintage Gill, as polemical as he is practical, as much concerned about the soul of man as the work of man; as much obsessed by the ends as by the means.

[the design process] is about designing and prototyping and making. When you separate those, I think the final result suffers.

The public is more familiar with bad design than good design. It is, in effect, conditioned to prefer bad design, because that is what it lives with. The new becomes threatening, the old reassuring.

It’s through mistakes that you actually can grow. You have to get bad in order to get good.

I want to make beautiful things, even if nobody cares, as opposed to ugly things. That’s my intent.
