Joanna MTDesigner: Eric Gill
Publisher: Adobe
Joanna MT was designed by Eric Gill and released by Adobe. Joanna MT contains 7 styles and household package options. p > Joanna was developed by Eric Gill in 1930, based upon type initially cut by Granjon, and released by the Monotype Corporation in 1937.

He created the typeface for the printing company of Hague & & Gill, which he formed to provide his idle son-in-law a profession, and called the style for his child. Only the Caslon foundry cut it for hand composition.

It is, as Gill himself described it, "a book face devoid of all expensive organization," with little, straight serifs and a spare elegance that makes it significantly appealing and recognized.
