Author(s): William Morris
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 work.
Arts and Crafts pioneer William Morris (1834-1896), was famous for his wallpaper and fabric designs and his mastery of colour. A social reformer as well as a designer, he called for a return to crafts, the use of natural - rather than manmade - materials, and designs that were both practical and beautiful. His belief that beauty had the power to transform everyday lives revolutionised British design, and his ideas continue to inspire people today.
