Widely regarded as one of the most exquisite books ever printed, the Kelmscott Chaucer is the masterwork of William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. Published in 1896, more than 30 years after the two discovered a shared love of art and medieval literature while students at Oxford University, The Complete Works of Geoffrey Chaucer now newly imprinted represents the peak of their artistic collaboration. Each page from the book features an intricate border and a scene from Chaucer’s narrative accompanied by the text—lots of great detail to color.
