"William Morris continues to be celebrated as one of the most imaginative and lyrical designers of the nineteenth century. Many of his patterns are still in production today, and his evocative flowing lines have offered inspiration to succeeding generations of applied artists." "The twenty-six plates in this collection have been chosen to represent a broad cross-section of Morris's patterns for furnishing textiles and wallpapers, and the large format makes it possible to study the designs as they were first created. Norah Gillow's Introduction provides an informative background to the artist and the work of his company, Morris and Co. This superb reference book, offering the best of Morris's beautiful interior designs in their original forms, is sure to appeal to artists, designers and art historians."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
