William Morris: Artist, Craftsman, Pioneer
William Morris was an outstanding character of many talents, being an architect, writer, social campaigner, artist, and with his Kelmscott Press, an important figure of the Arts and Crafts movement. Many of us probably know him best, however, from his superb furnishings and textile designs, intricately weaving together natural motifs in a highly stylized two-dimensional fashion influenced by medieval conventions. Following the bestselling success of Art Nouveau, Art Deco, and Alphonse Mucha, of the same series, this delightful new book offers a survey of his life and work alongside some of his finest decorative work. It is a richly beautiful book.
