    Glorious prints!
    I live just a spit away from Kelmscott House and I’ve been meaning to go and have a look at their library and collection of prints for ages. Must do it .

    What fabulous photos and wouldn’t Mr Morris be so proud…
    proud to see his iconic {textile/wallpaper} designs live on…
    proud to know that his #1 wish came true re: his work…
    that his print designs have become “art for all’~

    Love seeing both the WM patterns and what other people have made with them! The books from his Kelmscott press are also full of visual inspiration, the kind of luxury that respects fine craftsmanship rather than ‘brand’.

      He did have an incredible eye for design, proportion and colour. And thanks for tip..I will have to discover the kelmscott press book.. Xxxx

    These photos are absolutely fantastic! Harrison’s blazer is to die – as is that Alice and Olive floral number. Such a cool rich earthy vibe.
