As proprietor of the Kelmscott Press, William Morris (1834-1896) - poet, artist, designer, social activist - played a key role in the revival of fine printing in the late nineteenth century. He inspired a generation of printers, typographers, and designers to strive toward the highest possible standard in the making of books. His influence continues to be felt to this day, and his books remain monuments in the history of publishing.
