Description

"Have nothing in your home that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful."
William Morris was a founder member of the British Arts and Crafts movement of the nineteenth century, and this quote is a neat summation of his belief that everyone deserves to live with beautiful things around them.

This quote has been written out using lightfast sepia and orange acrylic inks on acid-free card, for a long-lasting gift that will suit crafters, artists, or anyone else with an appreciation of the finer things in life.

It will be posted out flat and unframed, in a hardback envelope to ensure it reaches you in perfect condition.

    Yes, everything was fine with ordering thru shipping. I like the quote and the style and colors of the writing. I'm having it matted and framed to hang in my living room so my guests and see it.

    Two amazing pieces of custom artwork from Ryan. I previously bought the 'I will love you forever' extract from Pullman and absolutely love that piece. I asked Ryan if he could produce similar pieces for two poems that mean a lot to my wife and me, namely, Sonnet 116 and The Owl and the Pussycat. Not only did he produce the goods, but he went above and beyond to get things right. Due to the length of the latter poem, he suggested doing a larger, illustrated version, the result of which is absolutely superb. Ryan took the time to do many sketches and send them to me for my opinion. I really enjoyed the whole process of seeing the artwork develop, and just want to thank Ryan for the time and effort he put into these pieces. Ryan is a fantastic artist and cares a lot about getting things just right for the customer. Thanks again.
