Video tip: “Edward Johnston – Calligraphy & Type Design with Ewan Clayton”

UK-based calligrapher and lecturer Ewan Clayton presents a portrait of the font designer Edward Johnston in a nearly one-hour talk. The result is an interesting and inspiring picture of Johnston’s life and work.

Johnston designed Johnston Sans for the London underground some 100 years ago. And as Clayton himself notes, the font could be described as “the face of London”. One reason of many why you should look at the exciting video.
