One of the foremost leaders of the Arts and Crafts movement in Victorian England, Morris channeled his remarkable talents into a variety of creative areas, including magnificent stained glass projects. For this coloring book, A. G. Smith has skillfully adapted ten of Morris's splendid stained glass designs, as well as six of his wallpaper and textile motifs.
The illustrations, carefully rendered on translucent paper, include scenes of Adam Naming the Beasts
, as well as vestry window panels of Adam and Eve from All Saints Church in Gloucestershire; Sleeping Apostles
from the Transfiguration Panel in St. Cuthbert's Church in Lancastershire; panels of dense foliage and fruit-laden boughs from the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow; and many more.
To stimulate the dazzling effects of stained glass art, simply color each boldly outlined work with paints, crayons, felt-tip pens or colored pencils, then place the finished work of art in a window or near another source of light.
