Synopsis

May Morris, youngest daughter of influential designer William Morris, was one of the leading female contributors to the Arts and Crafts Movement. She ran the embroidery department of her father's famous firm Morris & Co., and had a successful freelance career as a designer, maker, and exhibitor, founding the Woman's Guild of Arts in 1907 and undertaking a lecture tour in the United States between 1909 and 1910. May's approach to embroidery was innovative and widely influential in the UK and abroad, yet her important contribution to embroidery is often overshadowed by the accomplishments of her more famous father. This book is an attractive introduction to May's work, with exquisite images including close-up photographs of her embroideries.
