William Morris (1834–96) was one of the greatest pattern designers of all time: his work remains enduringly popular. He is famous for his superb textiles and wallpapers, and the books produced at his Kelmscott Press are some of the most remarkable volumes ever printed. Morris’s London design firm Morris & Company (1861–1940) was one of the most successful and progressive in Victorian Britain. It had an international clientele that extended to Australia.

CHRISTOPHER MENZ is an art consultant based in Melbourne. He is a former Senior Curator of Decorative Arts at the NGV and a former Director of the Art Gallery of South Australia. He has published and produced exhibitions on the design work of William Morris.
