Non Solus, the first digital version of Eric Gill’s ‘Solus’ of 1929, is now offered in four weights, each with an Italic included. The typeface is uncluttered and elegant, more modern and less fussy than Joanna, Gill’s other slab serif, and also possesses greater warmth. The Non Solus family brings a forgotten classic back to active service.
The Regular weight has been fine-tuned slightly lighter. Many outline, spacing and kerning refinements have been made, and Western European accented characters added. The new release adds three new weights, Light, Medium and Bold, and all weights are accompanied by free Italics that are only gently inclined and are noticeably condensed in keeping with other Gill faces.
Gill’s alternative M is located at the µ key (Alt M on a Mac, Alt-0181 on a PC).
