Gill Sans Nova®
Vient de la série Eric Gill.
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.
Before starting his career in type, George Ryan spent three years in the US Army, serving in Germany and Vietnam. He was heavily involved in the early development of digital font production tools, working for Bitstream in the 1980s and for Galapagos in the 90s. He calculated that he had spent more than 35 years ‘drawing letters.’ Ryan also had extensive experience as a software programmer and computer network troubleshooter. From 2004, he was a type designer at Monotype. Ryan designed the Oz Handicraft typeface, based on the work of Oswald Cooper.
