'If I were asked to say what is at once the most important production of Art and the thing most to be longed for, I should answer, A beautiful house; and if I were further asked to name the production next in importance and the thing next to be longed for, I should answer, A beautiful book.'- William Morris.

 

 

This special Puffin Classics edition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has been inspired by the Victoria and Albert Museum’s collection of the work of Arts and Crafts pioneer William Morris (1834 – 1896). Morris was well known for his wallpaper and fabric designs, and for his mastery of colour. Illustrator Liz Catchpole has selected Morris patterns from the V&A archive and produced a new cover inspired by the collection, with reproductions of the original illustrations by John Tenniel.

 

 

 
The collaboration between Puffin Classics and the V&A is all the more fitting because of the Museum’s support of children’s stories through its National Library – which contains every book published in this collection – and the V&A Museum of Childhood.

About the designer
William Morris

William Morris

Textile designer, writer and social pioneer, William Morris and his work have long been associated with the V&A. In 1865, his company was commissioned to design the West Dining Room at the museum, which features early examples of a number of the organic patterns that would make his name. Born in Walthamstow in 1836, Morris was captivated by nature from childhood, spending much of his time exploring Epping Forest and the surrounding countryside. These themes informed much of his textile design, and his mastery of pattern ensured an enduring appeal.
