Friday Featured Art: News from Nowhere

I've been reading News from Nowhere by William Morris. It's been interesting - it outlines Morris's political ideals in novel form. What I love about it, though, is the frontispiece from the original edition, printed by the Kelmscott Press. This woodcut depicts Morris's country home - Kelmscott Manor. We visited Kelmscott in 2009, and I bought a card with this design. It's so beautiful.
