This book is an anthology drawn from the work of Eric Gill, a well known sculptor, wood and stone carver, letterer, engraver, typeface designer and graphic artist. Besides his work in the arts, Gill was also a radical religious and social philosopher for whom "life was more than art, " because it was the highest art, the art of being human. His interests were never theoretical and his view of life was holistic, involving the whole person in a unity of art, work, and spiritual values. This volume is a wonderful glimpse into one of the 20th century's most creative minds.
