News from Nowhere
An exquisite facsimile of the Kelmscott Press edition of William Morris’ seminal 1890 novel, News from Nowhere, published in association with the V&A.
With its radical blend of utopian socialism and science fiction, News from Nowhere caused a stir when it was first published in instalments in the Commonweal in 1890. The Kelmscott Press edition, printed in 1892 and reproduced in this facsimile edition, was a triumph of book design and making, embodying Morris’ belief that art and beauty should be accessible to all. As relevant today as when it was first published, this collectible volume is a rare opportunity to own a pioneering literary work by the visionary English textile designer.
