Poet, designer, printer and publisher, William Morris was a man of astonishing energy, range and depth. This illustrated volume surveys his varied achievements and the work of Morris & Company (‘the Firm’), with essays on stained glass; the decoration of houses; the art of the book; and Morris’s chosen artistic successor at the Firm, John Henry Dearle. Published to coincide with an exhibition at the Huntingdon Library in California, the book ends with a discussion of Morris’s influence in America.
