Eric Gill was a uniquely talented artist, today we are still using type faces developed by him. The slim commentary booklet reproduces a piece about the initial collaboration of gill and the golden cockrel press and also an interesting section about typography as done by eric gill. ( )

First words
The inclusion of the Gospels in the Penguin Classics series entails no new assessment of their literary, as against their spiritual importance.

Introduction, 1952.
THE FIRST WORD OF THE GOOD TIDINGS OF JESUS CHRIST SON OF GOD In accordance with the Scripture in the Prophet Isaiah, Behold I send my Messenger ahead of thee to prepare thy way; the voice of one crying in the wilderness 'Prepare the way of the Lord: make his paths straight', John the Baptizer appeared in the wilderness proclaiming, for the forgiveness of sins, a baptism of repentance.

The gospel as recorded by Mark.
