Description

May Morris: Arts & Crafts Designer.

May Morris (1862-1938), younger daughter of William Morris, was a significant figure in the British Arts & Crafts movement and a pioneer of 'art embroidery'. She ran the embroidery department of Morris & Co., as well as designing textiles, wallpapers and jewellery. May was also an influential teacher and lectured in the UK and America.

May Morris: Arts & Crafts Designer is the first publication to present the full range of May Morris's work and reveals her exceptional skill and originality. It draws together her designs, exquisite embroideries, watercolours, costume and jewellery from the museums around the world, and in particular the rich collections of the Victoria and Albert Museum and the William Morris Gallery, London. The book contains more than 180 objects in colour and detailed information on their materials and provenance compiled by leading experts. There are also new insights into Mays personal life and relationships, her social activism and her support for other craftswomen. 

This authoritative and illuminating study places May Morris, whose reputation has been overshadowed by that of her father, firmly among the leading British designer-makers of the Arts and Crafts movement.
