Discovering MacDonald Gill, architect, artist and map maker Caroline Walker Wednesday 20 February 2019

MacDonald 'Max' Gill was best known for his eye-catching, sometimes humourous, pictorial maps, especially those for London Underground. He worked with many eminent architects, including Lutyens, creating painted maps for Arts and Craft houses, for Cunard Liners as well as churches and publicity posters for major organisations. An enduring legacy is his alphabet used on all British military headstones since World War I
