The artist is not a different kind of person, but every person is a different kind of artist.More Eric Gill quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The shapes of letters do not derive their beauty from any sensual or sentimental reminiscences. No one can say that the O’s roundness appeals to us only because it is like that of an apple or of a girl’s breast or of the full moon. Letters are things, not pictures of things.More Eric Gill quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is freely admitted that this "testing" is far from ideal and could even be described as anecdotal.More Eric Gill quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Legibility, in practice, amounts simply to what one is accustomed to. But this is not to say that because we have got used to something demonstrably less legible than something else would be if we could get used to it, we should make no effort to scrap the existing thing. This was done by the Florentines and Romans of the fifteenth century; it requires simply good sense in the originators & good will in the rest of us.More Eric Gill quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Without philosophy man cannot know what he makes; without religion he cannot know why.More Eric Gill quotes [08/19/2011 03:08:50]
