About Gill Sans Nova

The Eric Gill Series is a collection of 77 fonts in three families: Gill Sans® Nova, Joanna® Nova and Joanna Sans Nova. All the typefaces are derived from the original work of the influential British artist Eric Gill (1882-1940), acclaimed in his lifetime as a sculptor, letter-cutter and type designer. These are contemporary digital typefaces – with a wide range of weights, alternate characters and extended language support – that pay homage to Gill’s original designs.

From 2004, he was a type designer at Monotype. Ryan designed the Oz Handicraft typeface, based on the work of Oswald Cooper.
