The Kelmscott Chaucer: William Morris & Edward Burne-Jones Colouring Book

$16.95

Published with: the British Library

Widely regarded as one of the most exquisite books ever printed, the Kelmscott Chaucer is the masterwork of William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. Published in 1896, more than 30 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. Each page from the book features an intricate border and a scene from Chaucer’s narrative accompanied by the text—lots of great detail to color.

William Morris

A leader of the Arts and Crafts movement—which valued handicrafts over mass-produced goods—William Morris (English, 1834–1896) was also a writer, a founder of England’s socialist movement, and a designer of typefaces, fabrics, and wallpapers. He believed that decoration, in its finest form, gives pleasure to those who use it, as well as to those who make it. So after training as an architect, he cofounded a decorating company to produce glasswork, metalwork, and countless other crafts, including many textiles he designed himself. His genius shone brightly in the design of complex, intricately repetitive patterns. His work defines the best of Victorian fashion and was important to the development of Art Nouveau. Morris’s designs are as elegant today as when they came off his drawing board.
