William Morris Embossed Boxed Notecard Assortment

$17.95

Published with: The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens

Despite the rise of industrial manufacturing, William Morris believed in craftsmanship. Along with other leading painters, Morris founded what would become Morris & Company, producing decorative textiles and furnishings in a way that intimately linked artist and craftsman and returned to less mechanized methods of production. His works are now considered exemplary of the Arts and Crafts movement and important to the development of Art Nouveau. The four Morris designs embossed on these notecards were part of larger patterns printed or woven on cotton, silk, or linen by Morris & Company. Please note: the images are not printed with ink. The shapes of the illustrations are embossed on high-quality recycled paper.

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.
