Exhibition | The Quest for the Beautiful Book: William Morris and the Kelmscott Press

July 8 – October 25 | Allen Library South Basement

Immerse yourself in the influences on Morris and his creative artistic work in textiles, stained glass, furniture, wallpaper, ceramics and ultimately type designing and letterpress printing. Morris’ extensive output of poems, heroic stories and essays will be featured. His influences include medieval manuscripts, historic architecture, the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, socialism, John Ruskin, early literary sources, nature, and his complex personal and public life. In his 62 years, Morris amassed a large body of artistic work.

This exhibit complements and coincides with Seattle Art Museum’s Victorian Radicals From the Pre-Raphaelites to the Arts and Crafts Movement, which closed Sept 8. Curated by Sandra Kroupa, Book Arts and Rare Book Curator, this is the first time the Libraries has exhibited on William Morris since 1995.
