The Life of William Morris

Paperback. 364 pages.
Originally written in 1899 and published as two volumes, The Life of William Morris is now bound as one volume in this updated edition. This classic biography was written just a few years after Morris’ death at the request of Edward Burne-Jones. J.W. Mackail was given access to Morris’ family and business papers and interviewed many of Morris’ friends, family members, and fellow artists to create a compelling biography of the artist’s life.
