An accessible and exciting approach to William Morris, a true art and design hero. The beautifully designed book will look at William Morris as an artist and culture shaper and include his most famous works.
Taking nature as his inspiration, William Morris created over a hundred intricate and iconic wallpaper, textile and embroidery designs. As much a poet and activist as a designer, today he is considered one of the most outstanding and influential designers of the Arts and Crafts movement of the late nineteenth century. His patterns continue to be made and sold today and can be found all over the country.
