typographic mailer

in type class i was instructed to make a mailer for a font of my choice. i decided to research eric gill's typeface, gill sans. i learned he was an apprentice to morrison, while he was making the london underground typeface. while eric was contributing to the underground type, he was working on his own. morrison saw the typeface later and said it should have been the true face of the underground. knowing this, i wanted to incorporated underground by using the stairwells, mind the gap type on the ground, way out sign, and mapping.

to the 'underground'

way out sign on the top right corner into the middle portion with information about the typeface
