This book is about a man and the growth of an idea.

The man is William Morris, great Victorian artist-craftsman, designer, poet, polymath and visionary thinker. The idea is his concept of art for the people, which inspired the nascent British socialist movement, influenced successive generations and affects us still today.

William Morris regarded beauty as a basic human right. In this fascinating book, Morris’s biographer Fiona MacCarthy looks at how his highly original vision of a new form of society in which art could flourish gas reverberated through the decades. From the beginnings of Morris’s Red House circle of artists and craftspeople, MacCarthy charts the development of a revolution and explains the continuing relevance of Morris’s ideals as expressed in the planning and execution of the 1951 Festival of Britain, a regenerative project of the post-war Labour government that inspired young designers, such as Terence Conran, with a direct sense of mission to bring the highest design standards within the reach of everyone.
