Wilhide, Elizabeth
WILLIAM MORRIS DECOR AND DESIGN
NY: Harry N. Abrams, 1991

Quarto. 192 pp; illustrated with more than 140 color photographs; pattern glossary; list of suppliers; bibliography; index. Hadcover with dustjacket. Near Fine/Near Fine, a clean, unmarked copy. Morris (1834-96] was an amazing figure, a painter, poet, translator, weaver, typographer; designer of stained glass, tiles, carpets, furniture, and tapestries; and a socialist organizer. Wilhide focuses on Morris's zeal to ``Bring art back into people's lives'' via his stunning wallpapers and furnishings, which drastically changed late 19th-century English interiors. While the book is well written and researched, its special appeal is the inclusion of numerous lush photos of historic rooms decorated by Morris & Co., along with contemporary rooms decorated from current sources.
