May Morris: Art & Life

New Perspectives


May Morris was a woman of many talents, few of which were recognised during her lifetime or for decades afterwards. This wide-ranging publication, based on the proceedings of a conference held in 2016, presents a celebration of the life and work of a very special individual: a designer, craftswoman, teacher, historian, author, editor and a forerunner in both political and feminist causes – a woman for today. All 13 of the contributors to the conference are featured bringing new research and insights into the life and the art of William Morris’s younger daughter May.
