An Essay on Typography is a 1931 book by Eric Gill about the history of typographical art and production, and its state in the 1930s when Gill was writing. It has been considered a classic since its first publication: the influential graphic designer Paul Rand called it 'timeless and absorbing'.

The first edition of the book was typeset by Gill himself in his own Joanna typeface, making use of typographical features similar to those seen on handwritten manuscripts.
