The strange religious images of the strange Eric Gill.

“‘Bath and slept with Gladys.’,  ‘Expt. (experiment) with dog in eve’ (the rest has been obliterated). Then, five days later, ‘Bath. Continued experiment with dog after and discovered that a dog will join with a man’”. Gladys was Eric’s sister. Such Gill family intimacies seem routine, a habit. The diaries of Eric Gill from November and December of 1929, the complete set of which were sold by Gills wife Mary to UCLA after his death.
