Love is enough (Limited Edition)

Morris, William
Publisher: The Folio Society
Binding: Hardcover
Pages: 152
Measurements: 19.50 x 31.00 cm

Housed in The Morgan Library & Museum in New York is a rarely seen jewel of Arts and Crafts book production – a personalised copy of William Morris’s poetic masterpiece Love is Enough, hand-illustrated on every page with vibrant floral watercolours by Beatrice Pagden and strikingly bound by the legendary Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson for its original owner, Morris’s publisher and confidant, Frederick Startridge Ellis.

Every element of this unique volume has now been recreated for the first time in our meticulous facsimile: the fresh colours of the beautiful illustrations, the luxurious binding (including the tiny signature, 18 C-S 87, that is blocked on the doublure), and even the feel of its pages. The result is a breath-taking combination of text, illustration and case that perfectly embodies Morris’s vision of the ‘beautiful book’.
