Eric Gill's Autobiography was published in December 1940, one month after his death at the age of fifty-eight. The book soon became a best-seller and was reprinted eleven times during the five years of World War II.

Gill proved to be one of Britain's most versatile artists during the first half of this century. He left his mark both within England and abroad in the fields of sculpture, wood-engraving, typography and design. His typefaces, such as Perpetua and Gill-Sans serif, are still widely used today.

Although his Autobiography has for many years been the main source of information regarding his life and work, several biographies have, during the last decades, shed an interesting light on the life of this extraordinary artist and craftsman. Robert Speaight's Life of Eric Gill appeared in 1966, to be followed by Donal Attwater's, A Cell of Good Living, three years later. However, interest in the life and work of Eric Gill has not waned and his Autobiography remains a most important record of the life and work of an artist whose influence is still visible today.

As Eric Gill wrote to his publisher Jonathan Cape in 1933: "I very much doubt whether you would dare to publish what I should dare to write for I do not see how my kind of life, which is not that of a big game hunter, could be written without intimate details."
