Edmund Gray is the son of Nicolette Gray, Laurence Binyon’s daughter, who was a great friend of David Jones whose passion for lettering equalled her own. She wrote several books on lettering and set up the Central Lettering Record. Her long friendship with Jones was commemorated by her excellent works on his inscriptions and paintings.
