What is the Gill Floriated Caps™ font?
Gill Floriated is based on a single character which Eric Gill drew as a decorated initial for use on a specimen setting of his Perpetua type. Although Gill was at first reluctant to produce a full alphabet, Monotype advisor Stanley Morison was able to persuade him to draw a few more characters from which the Type Drawing Office was able to create a full set.
Issued in 1937 for display casting, it was revived by Monotype in 1995 for electronic publishing.
Best used sparingly as dropped initials.
