Max Gill, compass (detail), University of Brighton Design Archives, Sirpa Kutilainen

On a light note for a Friday afternoon –  this compass from the corner of Max Gill’s ‘Post Office Wireless Stations’ poster from 1939 has to be the most beautiful interpretation of a compass I have seen for a long long time.

    Have you had the opportunity to see any of the Gill font designs for the Commonwealth War Graves in WW1?

    Yes, indeed I have – they will also be featured in the exhibition.
