English calligrapher and illuminator. After starting out as a lawyer, then as a writer, he became seriously interested in calligraphy. He was one of the first students of Edward Johnston’ new course on lettering at the Central School of Arts and Crafts in London in 1900. Hewitt went on to teach classes at the School for over thirty years.
Hewitt’s works include The Pen and Type Design (1928), which was set in his own type design, Treyford, and Lettering (1930).
