      • Product Description: Morris created highly distinctive designs for wallpapers and textiles, many of which are still enjoying enormous popularity today. Through his company Morris & Co., he contributed to the transformation of interior design at the end of the 19th-century and gave expression to the ideas of the Arts and Crafts Movement. This highly accessible text looks at pattern and colour, as well as sources of inspiration such as nature, literature and legend. It also offers a fascinating insight into his working practices which were so different from those of many of his Victorian contemporaries. His desire to make beautiful things was at the core of his enterprise and his subtle colour schemes and evocative designs, many of which are still in production, have a timeless appeal. Specially commissioned photography captures many of his designs in situ, as well as in close-up detail, and this new introduction to the work of William Morris should provide a wealth of ideas and inspiration for contemporary home owners.
