5.0 out of 5 stars Just beautiful., 2 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: William Morris: Artist, Craftsman, Pioneer (Hardcover)
Bought this book after spending time at the Red House, for a friends birthday. Whilst the house is lovely, there wasn't many examples of Morris' work. This book had it all with amazing commentary on the man himself. Friend was delighted and so was I.

A beautiful book, with a well-written text. Borrowed it from the library first, but just didn't want to give it back.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pioneering Decor, 6 Dec. 2011

This review is from: William Morris: Artist, Craftsman, Pioneer (Hardcover)
This book is about the life and work of William Morris. By 1866, Morris and his Firm had decorated the armoury and tapestry
rooms at St James's Palace, a year later, designed the Green Room at the South Kensington Museum. Morris was also commissioned to decorate Alexander Ionides (1833-1900) house on Holland Park. He also decorated some of the first-class cabins in the Titanic. Commissions such as these established Morris as the supreme interior decorator of the nineteenth century. Morris enjoyed long nature walks, therefore his designs of wallpapers, textiles etc. became synonymous with his love of nature.

As well as appealing to furniture makers and interior decorators etc., readers with an interest in Pre-Raphaelite art will know that Edward Burne-Jones was Morris's lifelong friend who accepted a commission to design a stained glass window for St. Philip's Cathedral, Birmingham which was delivered one year after Morris's death. R.Ormiston and N.M. Wells have crafted an an excellent insight into Morris's life and work, from his art to his socialist activities, during the Industrial Revolution which had produced many inequalities between the working classes and capitalists. Morris believed that art as well as education should be available to all rather than the few. Morris's philanthropological attributes shine through in this illustrated masterpiece. An uplifting book with an abundance of illustrations on each page.
