When William Morris rented Kelmscott Manor in 1871, the Cotswolds became the centre for both the Arts and Crafts and the Private Press Movements and this is what connects the subjects of the five essays in this book: the printmaker and bibliophile Emery Walker; William and May Morris at Kelmscott Press; the architect-designer Ernest Gimson; Sidney Barnsley the architect and craftsman; and the stained glass artist Paul Woodroffe. This book is the third to be published on the stunning collection of Arts and Crafts objects that are held at the Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum. Unlike the previous two volumes which focused on traditional decorative arts collections, this book draws on the extensive archive of printed material to explore themes important to both the Arts and Crafts Movement and the Private Press Movement: the importance of design and workmanship, the dissemination of information and the pleasure of books. Using as their resource the Cheltenham archive of drawings, designs and photographic records, together with the Emery Walker Library, the authors provide a fresh look at the Arts and Crafts Movement.
