The Gardens of William Morris

Jill Duchess of Hamilton, Penny Hart and John Simmons


Hardback, 160 pages, 260 x 260mm, UK, 1998.

William Morris’s gardens were as much a part of his aesthetic vision as his interiors and fabrics, and the native plants he loved so well often formed the basis of his most popular patterns. From The Red House to Merton Abbey, “The Gardens of William Morris” explores the man and his gardens – the gardens that encouraged a new movement in design.

Beautifully presented book showing the world of William Morris and his adherence to the principles of a simpler Medieval past. The flowers he preferred are shown and his use of them in his textile designs. The scenery, his houses, gardens and business premises are all included.
