Anyone know if this is this available digitally?
What, Gill Sans?
Nick, I mean this particular version, which is unusually outlined.
Clumsily outlined, I’d say.
Regardless, I still wish to know if it is available.
It's probably custom.
Grepping through Letraset books might work. Odessa LET is similar except for its AvantGarde-like look.
I found this today in Rookledge's Type Finder.
It's officially Gill Sans Shadow Line.
(Thanks Té, I also saw Odessa and noted it for reference).
and to reiterate your original question: Anyone know if this is this available digitally? :)
It doesn't seem to be available in a digital format.
Probably wouldn't be too hard to create from Gill Sans Bold…
The file on Eric Gill at the Klingspor museum has a scan of GS Shadow Line.
I got a hi-res scan from Rookledge's but the specimen goes right to the gutter so it is not ideal as it bends round the page. I am going to use that for the project pitch and see where I end up.
If anyone has any alternatives (Té mentioned Odessa for example) that would be great. Even better if they are available digitally.
and then there is this.
