A tribute to Arthur Eric Rowton Gill.

Rowton FY digs its roots in Eric Gill's views on typography in his book "An essay on Typography". This typeface has the really British feel of the 20th century. Taking as motivation the calligraphic illustrations of the book, Julien Priez, Hugo Dumont, Jérémie Hornus, and Alisa Nowak, formed up a brand-new style. This sans-serif is tuned for text setting (with small capitals) but can likewise be effective at larger sizes, specifically with its lighter weights, and does a perfect task for signage or logos.

Taking the same source of inspiration a stencil display typeface for strong and custom titling is likewise in the making.

Rowton Sans FY has 6 weights (from Hairline to Bold), with carefully sloped italics companions that have details of cursive handwriting. ExtraBold and Black weights are also part of the task and will be launched later.
