It's not just me

It seems I'm not the only one to prefer the use of Johnston's original 'underground' font rather than the reinterpretation his pupil created: Gill Sans.

Check out Ben Archer's very complete analysis of the inadequacies of Gill's most famous work.

To be fair to Gill some of the complaint levelled at him in that argument (indistinguishable l, I and 1) can be levelled at other sans-serif fonts, such as the scientifically designed Univers.
