William Morris – one of the most influential designers of the 19th century and an important figure in the Arts and Crafts movement – revisited in this inspirational interior design guide. Rich natural colours, liquid floral patterns, light airy rooms and simple wooden furniture are all radical principles of the Arts and Crafts movement, and are also the fundamentals of most modern décor. There has never been a better time for introducing Morris designs into the home. Illustrated with a wide range of historical and contemporary decorative schemes, this practical and inspirational guide suggests simple and cost-effective ways of creating an interior décor that aspires to purity, colour and craftsmanship, as defined by William Morris. Chapters provide information on pattern-matching, wall and window treatments, floor coverings, tiles and furnishings, so that a 'Morris style' can be extended to whatever degree of authenticity desired. A comprehensive suppliers' list details where to buy Morris and Co. fabrics and wallpapers, and Arts and Crafts furnishings, while an illustrated glossary containing sixty of the best-known designs allows for easy pattern selection and identification.

William Morris (1834–96) was an English poet, decorative artist, translator, romance writer, book designer, preservationist, socialist theorist, and political activist, whose admirers have been drawn to the sheer intensity of his artistic endeavors and efforts to live up to radical ideals of social justice. This Companion draws together historical and critical responses to the impressive range of Morris’s multi-faceted life and activities: his homes, travels, family, business practices, decorative artwork, poetry, fantasy romances, translations, political activism, eco-socialism, and book collecting and design. Each chapter provides valuable historical and literary background information, reviews relevant opinions on its subject from the late-nineteenth century to the present, and offers new approaches to important aspects of its topic. Morris’s eclectic methodology and the perennial relevance of his insights and practice make this an essential handbook for those interested in art history, poetry, translation, literature, book design, environmentalism, political activism, and Victorian and utopian studies.

The poet and visual artist Mina Loy has long had an underground reputation as an exemplary avant-gardist. Born in London of mixed Jewish and English parentage, and a much photographed beauty, she moved in the pivotal circles of international modernism—in Florence as Gertrude Stein's friend and Marinetti's lover; in New York as Marcel Duchamp's co-conspirator and Djuna Barnes's confidante; in Mexico with the greatest love, the notorious boxer-poet Arthur Cravan; in Paris with the Surrealists and Man Ray. Carolyn Burke's riveting, authoritative biography, Becoming Modern, brings this highly original and representative figure wonderfully alive, in the process giving us a new picture of modernism—and one woman's important contribution to it.

This is the first comprehensive survey of the colourful ceramic tiles produced by Morris & Company. From the earliest examples made for Red House to the tiles produced in the twentieth century, all the many different designs are illustrated and discussed in detail. Richard and Hilary Myers are proud to include a previously unrecorded tile panel among the many little-known examples described in this book. Found in a Sussex church, the panel takes its place with such masterpieces as the overmantel at Queens' College, Cambridge, and the Membland panels. All Morris & Co.'s tile designs are analysed and linked to related stained-glass, textile or graphic work produced by the Firm. The authors reveal the various contributions of individual designers, including Edward Burne-Jones, D. G. Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, Kate Faulkner and William Morris himself. Morris & Co.'s connections with the Dutch tileries, William de Morgan, Murray Marks and Barnard, Bishop & Barnard, and the roles they played in the production and distribution of the tiles, are all thoroughly examined.

Helen Ashfield's world is about to be turned upside down. Is she ready? Helen Ashfiel's life is complicated. Not only must she adjust to her parents' divorce, but she has to come to grips with her new school in the small South African Karoo town of Graaff-Reinet. She's sorely mistaken if she thinks she's going to slot seelessly into her new life. Her growing magical powers have attracted the unwanted attention of Trystan, a vampire, who may not have her best interests at heart. Outcast from his kind for drinking another vampire's blood, Trystan has been on the run for almost a hundred years from Mantis--the closest thing their kind has to an enforcer. All Trystan wants is an existence of quiet anonymity, but Helen turns his world upside-down. Helen's powers also mark her as one of Mantis' targets. If Mantis gets control of Helen, she'll change the course of history. . .for the worse. CONTENT WARNING: Violence, language. 79,835 Words

William Morris is one of the greatest and best-known British designers. This new introduction to his work puts his ideas into a modern context, showing how his designs can be used not only in traditional interiors but also in contemporary settings. Morris created highly distinctive designs for wallpapers and textiles, many of which are still enjoying enormous popularity today. Through his company, Morris & Co, he contributed to the transformation of interior design at the end of the 19th century and gave expression to the ideas of the Arts and Crafts Movement. The highly accessible text looks at pattern and colour, as well as sources of inspiration such as nature, literature and legend. It also offers a fascinating insight into his working practices which were so different from those of many of his Victorian contemporaries. His desire to make beautiful things was at the core of his enterprise and his subtle colour schemes and evocative designs, many of which are still in production, have a timeless appeal. Through specially commissioned photographs showing rooms using his designs in a wide variety of settings, and details of individual textile and wallpaper designs, the book provides a wealth of ideas and inspiration for contemporary home owners.
