Design for a Book Cover

Scope and Content

Black and white photograph of a design for a book cover, in pencil [by May Morris], on paper, leaning up sideways on against a white stand. The design is the same as that in 7MMO/1/172. The photograph is pasted onto a page, along with 7MMO/1/172, sideways on (so that the design is the correct way up. The object was held and photographed at the Bodleian Library, Oxford University. The photographs were taken during research by Elizabeth Masterman, for her book on May Morris. The text on the page reads 'Unidentified small binding / again : v. thick spine / : probably a small KP book'.
