Every month, How We Might Live: The Vision of William Morris, an exhibit highlighting the life and work of English designer and author William Morris (1834-1896), will showcase a new Morris-related item.

During the month of October, visit the exhibit to view a memorial poem written and printed by workers at the Kelmscott Press shortly after the death of William Morris on October 3, 1896.

Read an excerpt of the heart-filled poem:

Cast on an age of change, and stress, and strife
Thy aim was still, through manhood up from youth,
To beautify the meanest things of life
With that rich light that flows from Art and Truth.

  2. Admiring the time and energy you put into your blog and
