William Morris: Art and Life - Fiona MacCarthy


William Morris: Art and Life is published by the Art Workers’ Guild in memory of its author, and member of the Guild, Fiona MacCarthy, and as a tribute to our most famous Past Master William Morris.

The text is from our archive and formed the basis of a lecture Fiona gave at the Art Workers’ Guild in 1996.

The book features an introduction by Frances Spalding, is designed by Brian Webb and printed by Phil Abel at Hand & Eye Editions.

One of the greatest of the private presses was the Doves Press, and this little book has been designed to echo its work. The margins follow the golden ratio often used in mediæval books and much admired by the private presses. The type is Adobe Jenson, a modern recutting of the first roman type, first used in Venice in the 1470s and a favourite of Morris’s.

Price £15 + £2 p&p (within UK)
