Born into a prosperous family, William Morris (English, 1834-1896) left Oxford University to join an architectural firm but turned to the decorative arts after being inspired by the Pre-Raphaelites. In 1861 he formed his own company in London with several of those artists, including Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Edward Burne-Jones. A principal founder of Britain's Arts and Crafts movement—which valued handcraftsmanship over manufactured goods—Morris was also a writer of poetry and fiction, a founder of the socialist movement in England, and a designer of typefaces, fabrics, and wallpaper. This calendar's floral and foliate patterns represent decades of designs by Morris and his team and were selected from Morris & Company wallpaper sample books in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum.
