World-leading font company ‘Monotype’ has announced the new exhibition at the Old Truman Brewery and this time Monotype will present you with a seven-day show on the type designs of Eric Gill. To celebrate the past and future of the most acclaimed typefaces, Monotype has added new weights to make the typeface families more complete.

There will also be an accompanying panel discussion hosted by John L. Walters of Eye Magazine in the evening of Friday 6th November.
