Simon and Garfunkel

Gill Sans + Perpetua

[ Gill Sans Ultra Bold, Perpetua Std Italic and Roman ]

The most amazing harmonies and blending of voices belongs to Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel. Beginning in 1964, they made 6 studio albums together. After they split in the early 1970s, Simon completely overshadowed Garfunkel, yet they performed together every so often. With each reunion, they seemed to pick up right where they left off. In 1981 they performed together at Central Park, a free concert seen by half a million people.

For the typography, I’ve chosen two typefaces designed by Eric Gill. Gill was an artist, sculptor and typographer who created 10 typefaces during his lifetime, including Gill Sans and Perpetua. Gill Sans stands out as a giant of a typeface, a san serif with a human touch. The heavier weights have some eccentric elements that make it feel a little groovy, but the lighter weights are beautiful and subtle. Perpetua was first used in the book The Passion of Perpetua and Felicity and is clean and precise with its own subtle unique elements. It was released by Monotype in 1932. In subsequent years, the use of Gill Sans has greatly overshadowed that of Perpetua. Together, however, they still form typographic music to the ears.
