Description

Published by Taschen, Morris provides a compact insight into one of the most essential names of the Arts and Crafts movement of the Victorian era. English-born William Morris (1834–1896) became known for his work in architecture, design and pattern design, especially many ornamental tapestries and textiles. Written by English design historians Charlotte & Peter Fiell, the book is part of Taschen's Basic Architecture series that presents life and work of internationally renowned architects with approximately 120 photographs, sketches and drafts. The series has been edited by German art historian Peter Gössel.

William Morris was a polymath designer, writer, artist, and socialist activist, associated with England’s Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood as well as Arts and Crafts movement. His prolific design work included tiles, embroidery, tapestries, wallpaper, and carpets and championed handcraftsmanship, natural dyes, “art for all”, and beautiful patterns of subtly stylized natural forms.
