Eric Gill (1882–1940) was an English sculptor, stonemason, typographer, and printmaker. He was also a controversial figure whose fascination with erotica and sex were at odds with his deep religious beliefs. Among his many enduring artistic achievements are the typefaces Gill Sans, Perpetua, and Joanna; the group of sculptures Prospero and Ariel for BBC Broadcasting House; numerous World War I memorials; and a vast array of illustrations for the private Golden Cockerel Press.
 
Originally published in 1940, this autobiography offers an intimate look at Gill’s life, work, and highly recognizable style.
