Morris was one of the most influental figures in the Victorian and Edwardian art world. Aways a man of innovation, his desire for social reform was an important factor in his artistic growth as he moved on from painting to the creation of textiles, wallpapers, stained glass and even highly decorative furniture. This book examines his work and vision in detail from the earliest sketches to his intricate wallpaper and material designs still so sought after today.
