Book Description

William Morris Textiles was the first comprehensive survey of the many hundreds of original, colourful textiles produced by William Morris and the two commercial companies he founded and managed. To this day it remains the authority in the field, and this revised edition has been completely rewritten and expanded. Linda Parry provides new insight into the embroideries, printed and woven textiles, carpets and tapestries produced by Morris & Co., giving in-depth information about their design and manufacture. The varied, often highly specialized processes involved are discussed in detail, as are Morris's working methods. The very varied, often highly specialised processes involved are discussed in detail, also included, is a fully illustrated, definitive checklist of Morris & Co.'s patterns for printed textiles. Fully illustrated by mainly colour photographs with a few in b/w.
