This lively, deeply researched book focuses on the garden as an important part of William Morris's aesthetic vision. Using his letters, journals, poetry and prose, the authors bring to light the principles which had such an influence on garden designers, such as Gertrude Jekyll and William Robinson. The first part of the book considers the gardens that 'clothed' his environment, taking us from his marital home, the Red House, to Kelmscott Manor and the factory at Merton Abbey. The second part of the book features a catalogue of the native plants which appear in Morris's works of art, or which grew in his gardens. Plant portraits and elegant botanical drawings magically bring to life the emblems of Morris's creative vision.
