Gill, Eric (1882–1940). Artist and type-designer. From 1907 to 1924 he was associated with the Ditchling community and with its press. In the last decade of his life he wrote a number of influential books defending the goodness of natural things, and, in life, even ‘its Rabelaisian buffoonery and pig-style coarseness. All these things are good and holy.’ His expression of this in his personal life created strain for those close to him.
