Magical Worlds

 Printing textiles in Merton Abbey, Photo c. 1890, published 1911 in a book commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of Morris&Co.

A continued pleasure of maintaining this blog is getting to know fellow Morris fans, artists, and travel enthusiasts around the world.   The picture above of Morris's textile "factory", aka ground-zero of the Arts and Craft Movement, was sent to me by a doctoral student/designer named Andrei who lives in Finland.  He also happens to be an incredible are a few of his hauntingly beautiful images.
