‘Few will recognise the name Elizabeth Friedlander but many may be surprised to discover they have examples of the artist’s work at home, in the thousands of books, cards, posters and advertisements she designed, or even text set in Elizabeth-Antiqua, the font she created’ (Maev Kennedy in the Guardian here). An exhibition of her work has just opened at Ditchling in Sussex.
