More wonderful images of William Morris

William Morris, the school boy, doodled in one of his textbooks. The sign being held by the man says "W. Morris, His Horace." Note also the steeple drawing.
A note identifies this page of sketches to have been done by Morris during a committee meeting. That restless man could never stop his brilliant mind.
This rather pointed drawing was done after Morris changed the name and ownership of the company from "Morris, Marshall, Faulkner & Co." to the simple "Morris & Co." Zooming in, you can see the dejected lost members of the legacy sitting with a sign that says "we are starving", a cupola above them torn to simply say "___ & Co."

A page of doodles done by Morris:I especially love the stained glass cartoon on the left:

I still have a few more delightful images to share with you from this marvelous book!
