Gill Sans Nova was created by George Ryan. The update comes in a coordinated range of weights in regular and condensed weights, each with italics. The family has grown from 18 to 43 styles. Several new display fonts with inline and shadow effects were added, including Gill Sans Nova Deco – based on a typeface previously withdrawn from Monotype Library.
Joanna Nova by Ben Jones is based on Eric Gill’s Joanna and now has 18 styles with added support for Greek and Cyrillic. It also has small caps in both upright and italics, several numeral options and contextual ligatures.
Joanna Sans Nova by Terrance Weinzierl is a new typeface design, a Gill-inspired sans serif version of Joanna. According to Monotype this addition to the Gill family was designed specifically for the age of screen-based reading. The type family contains 16 fonts, from thin to black with accompanying italics and more than 1000 glyphs per style.
