Introductory note by John Bidwell

Housed in the Morgan Library & Museum in New York is a rarely seen jewel of Arts and Crafts book production—a personalized copy of William Morris’s poetic masterpiece Love is Enough, hand-illustrated on every page with vibrant floral watercolors by Beatrice Pagden and strikingly bound by the legendary Thomas James Cobden-Sanderson for its original owner, Morris’s publisher and confidant, Frederick Startridge Ellis. Every element of this unique volume has now been recreated for the first time in our meticulous facsimile: the fresh colors of the beautiful illustrations, the luxurious binding, and even the feel of its pages. The result is a breath-taking combination of text, illustration, and case that perfectly embodies Morris’s vision of the "beautiful book".
