Jane Morris at work

In the early biographies of William Morris Jane (and May's) contribution to Morris & Co, was virtually ignored. Only recently is this view starting to be re-appraised.

Jane Morris was actively involved in many of her husband's endeavours. In addition to her contributions to the firm, which continued until his death, she worked for the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings, the 1882 Icelandic Famine Relief Committee, and later the Kelmscott Press.
