Welcome to the MacDonald Gill website

MacDonald Gill, or ‘Max’ as he was known to family and friends, was one of the foremost graphic artists of the early twentieth century. Famed for his pictorial maps, he was also known for architecture, illustration, mural painting and lettering. His alphabet and regimental badge designs are still used on the familiar standard military headstone and his distinctive decorative maps established a style that continues to influence artist-mapmakers today.
