William Morris: Words & Wisdom Paperback

Regular price £10.00

William Morris was a radical thinker whose democratic vision for society and art has continued to influence designers, artists and writers to this day, long after his death in 1896.

Drawing on Morris's own extensive writings, and illustrated with vivid images of the man himself, as well as his iconic textiles and wallpapers, William Morris: Words & Wisdom explores his passionately held view that fine, functional design should be accessible to all. Alongside his own words are the reflection of Morris's friends, family and those who later found inspiration in his life.

A collection of observations by, and about, the great British polymath, visionary, designer and writer. Accompanied by images of Morris, his work and his collaborators.

EU orders: we are currently in the process of registering for IOSS, due to this customers ordering to the EU may have to pay import VAT (and customs duties, if payable) and a handling fee in the receiving country. These charges will depend on the destination country and the value of items ordered. Please do contact us at onlineshop@npg.org.uk for any additional information and any questions in regards to this.

While we will make every effort to despatch orders within two working days of receipt, there may be times during peak periods - such as Christmas - that this may vary slightly.

Covid-19

Royal Mail and our other regular global couriers have stopped asking for signatures when delivering parcels to customers. In cases where a parcel does not fit through a letterbox, the courier will leave the item at the door, and will step aside after knocking to ensure there is a safe distance while you retrieve your parcel.

In addition, some couriers are experiencing delays at this time. We would be grateful if you could have patience with us during this challenging time.
