The Passion of William Morris: The Kelmscott Chaucer

Wednesday, September 26, 2018,
  • Location: Central & Divinity Libraries • 419 21St Ave S • Nashville, TN 37240
  • Room: Special Collections

The Kelmscott Chaucer was a passion project of famed textile designer William Morris. The printing of this book is both a testament to the art of bookmaking as well as a strong response to the cultural loss of hand printing skills that had been destroyed by machine printing in the Industrial Revolution. Join Special Collections Curator Rachel Lavenda for a discussion about the people, the craftwork, and the zeitgeist behind the creation of this beautiful book.
