Kelmscott Press

Two employees working on the Kelmscott Chaucer, perhaps the most beautiful book in the world.

In 1889, Morris under the influence of printer and fellow Socialist (Emery Walker) began to study fine printing, and by 1891 was producing books. In the five years left tohim, Morris produced some 52 volumes from pamphlets to the Chaucer, which W B years callws 'the most beautiful of all printed books'.
