“[…] 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 [as Floriated Capitals 431], it was revived by Monotype in 1995 for electronic publishing [as Gill Floriated Capitals].” — Monotype
Also cast by Typefounders of Chicago as Canterbury Capitals.
Adobe’s digitization is named Gill Floriated Caps.
