David Kindersley

English stonecutter, who learned his craft as apprentice to Eric Gill from 1933. In 1939 he set up his own workshop in Cambridge. In 1952 he submitted a design, MoT Serif, to the British Ministry of Transport, who required new lettering to use on UK road signs. (This all-caps design was passed over in favour of that of Jock Kinneir and Margaret Calvert.)

Kindersley invented a system for the accurate spacing of letters. It is often praised, but has not seen wide adoption.

He married Lida Lopes Cardozo, also a stonecutter.
