William Morris Summary


William Morris: and the Arts & Crafts Home by Pamela Todd

Now available in paperback, Pamela Todd's book celebrates William Morris's genius, presenting a thorough overview of his life and career, while setting out his guiding principles so that a modern audience can recreate the Arts and Crafts style in their own homes. A series of `Case Studies' explores six contemporary houses - from a modern London townhouse to a traditional Arts and Crafts home in Massachusetts - that have followed and adapted Morris's dicta, brilliantly demonstrating how the style can be applied to our environment today. The book concludes with a comprehensive style-sourcing section, as well as a gazetteer of places to visit for inspiration. `An excellent book' - The Times `The definitive source book for anyone interested in the Arts & Crafts style ... stunning' - Period Living and Traditional Homes `Gorgeous ... packed with intelligently researched information and more than 200 exquisite illustrations ... Get this if you're tempted to introduce the true spirit of Morris to your home' - Grand Designs
