Pioneer of modern design The life and work of visionary designer William Morris

William Morris (1834–1896) was one of the great figures of the 19th century—a pioneer of modern design. His work as a visionary designer, manufacturer, political activist and social reformer had a profound influence on his contemporaries and on subsequent generations. As founder and owner of Morris & Co. he revitalised the craft tradition and established a simplified, popular and highly aesthetic look. This richly illustrated overview focuses on all aspects of Morris’s design work—interiors, stained glass, furniture, tiles, wallpapers, embroidery, textiles, tapestries, carpets, and calligraphy—while detailing the events of his remarkable life. Charlotte & Peter Fiell have written numerous TASCHEN books, including 1000 Chairs, Design of the 20th Century, Industrial Design A–Z, Scandinavian Design, Designing the 21st Century, Graphic Design for the 21st Century, 1000 Lights and Contemporary Graphic Design. They have also edited TASCHEN’s Decorative Art series and the 12-volume domus 1928–1999.
