Eric Gill  designed the Gill sans serif face. No, that is not my favourite. But I do love his Perpetua face. He also designed one called Joanna, named, I think, after one of his daughter’s.

I’m also mad about Baskerville, named after an 18th century British printer from Birmingham called, you’ve guessed it, John Baskerville.
