This fall, the William Morris Society in the United States is offering a special offer to new members: join now and receive a limited-edition, hand-printed letterpress broadside featuring a quote from William Morris’s 1893 preface to Medieval Lore by Robert Steele:
The past is not dead, it is living in us, and will be alive in the future which we are now helping to make.
This print, created for us by Springtide Press in Tacoma Washington, is a limited edition of only 125 copies – so act soon to get yours!
As well as receiving the print, new members will be able to take advantage of all the benefits of a WMS-US membership. These benefits include twice-annual mailings of our beautiful magazine Useful and Beautiful and the Journal of William Morris Studies, access to our email newsletter and online events, and much more – you can read about it all and find out how to join on our membership page.
Already a member? Never fear!
As an additional benefit of membership, we’re offering a copy of the broadside to anyone who recommends a friend to join our Society. All your friend has to do is give your name when they sign up, and you will both receive copies – and be able to share the fellowship of mutual interest in William Morris. Direct your friends here to join us!
Update, December 6th 2021: All of the limited-edition broadsides have now been distributed. We hope you will still join – we plan to offer more opportunities for member gifts in the future.
