‘How We Might Live’ features a Binding by Morris

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.

In November, visit the exhibit to view two volumes of William Morris’ Earthly Paradise.  Both feature an intricate flower and leaf motif on the binding designed by Morris in 1890.  The red and green bindings are the great way to kick off the holiday season in true Morris fashion. So which version do you prefer, the red or the green?
