About: The celebration of literature stimulated by the Pre-Raphaelites’ literary interests encompassed all aspects of “the book,” including illustration, typeface, and cover design. In this example, embroidery is used as a medium for the cover. Needlework was one of many fabric arts which was encouraged and flourished as part of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Although we know very little of Annie Morris, she was one of many women who contributed to this genre.
