William Morris V&A Anniversary Edition

Edited by Anna Mason

William Morris (1834 - 1896) was a revolutionary actor in Victorian England, turning people away from the increasing fascination towards industrialisation and back to the respect for the skill of the maker. Hailed the founding father of the Arts and Crafts movement, Morris worked across multiple disciplines as an author, artist, political and social activist, conservationist and businessman.

Drawing on the collections of the V&A, William Morris is a fittingly lavish anniversary companion to mark the 125th anniversary of Morris’ passing. Edited by Anna Mason, former curator and manager at the William Morris Gallery in London, this book contains contributions from a wide range of Morris experts, exploring the balance between Morris’s various spheres of influence. With over six hundred full colour illustrations, this edition Morris’s ongoing legacy, placing his art in the context of its time.
