William Morris and Red House: A Collaboration Between Architect and OwnerTotal Hits - 953  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (19)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
A lavish record of an extraordinary collaboration between designer and architect—and the catalyst for the William Morris style.

Red House occupies a singular place in British architectural history: it was the first and only house that was built for designer William Morris, and it was the first independent architectural commission for his friend, Philip Webb. The challenge of furnishing the house inspired Morris and his Pre-Raphaelite friends to found the design firm of Morris & Co., which was the flagship for what was to become the Arts & Crafts movement. Red House captured Morris’ heart. He was only 25 when, in 1858, he married Jane Burden, whose beauty was the inspiration for much of Pre-Raphaelite art. With his young wife, he planned to produce a vision of "earthly paradise" at Red House; however, the idyll was found to be impractical, and Morris left after five years. Because of its illustrious first owner, Red House was never forgotten, and a succession of tenants kept Morris’ spirit alive in the house; in 2003, Red House was acquired for the National Trust. This handsome volume provides both the story of Red House and a "virtual tour" that enables the reader to see how this splendid house looked and functioned when it was inhabited by the celebrated designer.

William Morris Tiles : The Tile Designs of Morris and His Fellow-WorkersTotal Hits - 683  |  Hits Today - 0Rating:   Rating Average (1)    |  View Ratings  |  Add Your Rating
This is the first comprehensive survey of the colourful ceramic tiles produced by Morris & Company. From the earliest examples made for Red House to the tiles produced in the twentieth century, all the many different designs are illustrated and discussed in detail. Richard and Hilary Myers are proud to include a previously unrecorded tile panel among the many little-known examples described in this book. Found in a Sussex church, the panel takes its place with such masterpieces as the overmantel at Queens' College, Cambridge, and the Membland panels. All Morris & Co.'s tile designs are analysed and linked to related stained-glass, textile or graphic work produced by the Firm. The authors reveal the various contributions of individual designers, including Edward Burne-Jones, D. G. Rossetti, Ford Madox Brown, Kate Faulkner and William Morris himself. Morris & Co.'s connections with the Dutch tileries, William de Morgan, Murray Marks and Barnard, Bishop & Barnard, and the roles they played in the production and distribution of the tiles, are all thoroughly examined.
