Widely regarded as one of the most exquisite books ever printed, the Kelmscott Chaucer is the masterwork of William Morris (1834–1896) and Edward Burne-Jones (1833–1898). Published in 1896, more than thirty years after the two discovered a shared love of art and medieval literature while students at Oxford University, The Complete Works of Geoffrey Chaucer now newly imprinted represents the peak of their artistic collaboration.
This coloring book’s images are from a copy of the Kelmscott Chaucer in the collection of The British Library, which houses more than 150 million items representing every age of written civilization.
