Edward Johnston (1872?1944) was a man of letters ? mastercalligrapher, typeface designer and creator of the lettering and branding for the London Underground. Many were, and still are, influenced by his ideas on calligraphy and lettering, and those he tutored took his ideas and views into their own classes and to their own students. This detailed book looks at Johnston?s work and legacy. It considers his friendships and his philosophy, the people he worked with and the influence he had on them and others. Importantly, it gives details of the setting up of the craft community at Ditchling in Sussexand the craftspeople that were drawn to the village as a result.
