Child Christopher Binding

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.

Visit the exhibit in January to view a unique copy of William Morris’s fantasy novel, Child Christopher and Goldilind the Fair. This 1900 edition was published by published by the American fine press pioneer Thomas Mosher. Do you think the design on the binding is reminiscent of a Morris embroidery pattern? Or perhaps 8-bit video game graphics?
