WMS Broadside

The William Morris Society of the United States is pleased to announce a limited edition of 100 signed and numbered unique broadsides printed on the very press Morris once used!  The print was made on the Kelmscott-Goudy Press (now at the Rochester Institute of Technology in Rochester, New York) and each print was hand inked using Van Son rubber-base black ink and printed over the course of two days.  The broadside was printed on Zerkall paper, which was cut to retain a deckle on one edge.  Zerkall is a German paper mill which dates back to the 16th century.   The typefaces used include Ornament, Troy, and Golden — all of which were designed by Morris.  The artist commissioned is Steven Lee-Davis, a former student of Barry Mosher and printer at the Roycroft Shop in East Aurora, New York.  The portrait is accompanied by a quotation from Morris, “I do not want art for a few, any more than education for a few, or freedom for a few.”

The broadsides will be sold to benefit the William Morris Society. Copies are available at a cost of $50 each plus $5 shipping. Orders should be sent with check (written out to the William Morris Society/US) to Jane Carlin, Library Director, Collins Memorial Library, University of Puget Sound, 1500 N. Warner St. #1021, Tacoma, WA. 98416-1021

Learn more by visiting the website of Lee Davis and to read about the famous press used to print the broadside at the Rochester Institute of Technology website.
