New to Typophile? Accounts are free, and easy to set up.
In my copy of Twentieth Century Type Designers, Sebastian Carter writes,
"In September 1935 Gill drew for Monotype a stressed sans-serif type with many prophetic qualities: it looked forward to Hermann Zapf's 'serifless roman' Optima of nearly a quarter of a century later. Although it was given a series number (430), and a few trial sorts were cut, it was never issued to the trade."
Has anybody here seen these trials or reproductions thereof?
