William Morris (1834-96), Father of the Arts and Crafts movement, was one of the most important artistic and literary figures of the nineteenth century. His pattern designs reveal a love of wild flowers, plants and birds, and a fascination with medieval culture. Each of these 100 postcards shows a different motif by Morris and his company, offering a perfect introduction to the Victoria and Albert Museum's extensive collections.

Favourites such as Willow Bough, Strawberry Thief and Acanthus are presented alongside lesser-known wallpaper, textile and tile designs making this a must-have for all design fans.
