Facsimile of the masterpiece of the Kelmscott Press. The work encapsulates William Morris's intent to challenge all he thought wrong with the Industrial Revolution - the reduction of the individual craftsmanship of past times to a diminished, soulless template for the machine production of consumerism. Derived from exemplars of medieval manuscripts and early printed books, the works of the Kelmscott Press enshrined principles based on beauty and aesthetics - Morris's final challenge to a changing world.
