Ditchling, Sussex: St. Dominic’s Press
In a desire to escape the ‘trap’ of industrial machine-like London, the Gill family moved in the Summer of 1907 to ‘Sopers’, a house in Ditchling, Sussex. By 1913 they had decamped to nearby Hopkin’s Crank at Ditchling Common. This was the first of three self-sufficient religious and artistic communities that Gill established in his lifetime. Others followed them, including Edward Johnston, and the Pepler family. While at Ditchling, Pepler established St. Dominic’s Press and started producing hand-printed pamphlets and books. The ‘Welfare Handbooks’, a series of ten, was but one outcome. These covered topics such as birth control, health, dress, and Woes, which included Gill’s 1917 illustration ‘The Last Judgement’.
