Synopsis

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
