Like many aspects of our modern life it is interesting to imagine what William Morris might have thought about the phenomena of blogging in our digital age, had he been alive today. As a socially inclusive medium for communication we like to think he would approve of the tool as a means for disseminating information and ideas!
Through these pages we aim to bring you the latest news from inside the Morris & Co. business, covering new launches and reviews of recent exhibitions and events. We will report on inspirational projects and design collectives practising in the UK today. Through fascinating interviews with people working in the Arts and Crafts tradition, and linking with heritage houses and organisations connected to William Morris, this is an essential port of call for anyone interested in the design, philosophy and legacy of Morris and his contemporaries.
