My decor? Books, books, and more books. Each one is precious...and significant. Each one has a life...a personality. They carry a history. I feel the haunting of the original owner, every time I cradle it in my hands...or run my fingertips along its marginalia.

William Morris: His Life, Work and Friends by Philip Henderson.
Hardcover book with decorative boards published by Thames and Hudson 1967, 388 pages with some black and white photographs and illustrations.
William Morris: poet, politician, artist, craftsman. The Morris presented in Mr Philip Henderson’s book is not the familiar figure of misleading popular legend — a man lost in dreams of the Middle Ages — but a complex and explosive character whose passionate concern for the whole problem of art and society has made him highly relevant to our own time. Born to wealth and luxury, Morris was fully aware of the paradox inherent in his commitment to socialism. But his intense political involvement arose from his rage at seeing the old and finely made being replaced by the new and shoddy, in the name of ‘restoration’ and progress. ‘If men cannot carry on their business without making the world hideous; how can they care about art at all?’ #hgnew #bookstagram #instabook #rarebooks #bookporn #bookseller #vintagebooks #oldbooks #antiquarianbooks #booklover #books #rarebooks #rarebook #Clunes #Clunesvictoria #booktown #Ballarat #Daylesford #WilliamMorris #PreRaphaelite #Socialism #art #arthistory

Beautiful ornaments book from 1887. It's called "Ornamentenschatz" ("The Treasury of Ornament") and was written by Heinrich Dolmetsch (1846-1908). Dolmetsch was an architect specialized in restoring old churches. The book contains stunning examples of decorative patterns from many countries and eras. I will post some examples soon. Of course the cover of the book is very decorative, too.

For #bringyourdogtoworkday, Virginia Woolf's biography of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's dog Flush. Often dismissed by academics and by Woolf herself, who worried she would be dismissed as a 'ladylike prattler' after its commercial success, Flush is actually an incisive comment on Victoria snobbery and social mores, dressed up  as a doggo memoir.

Happy #FolkloreThursday! This week we opened up our 1579 Poemata Omnia, to seek out some  folklore lessons à la Horace. .
.
In Odes 3.27, Horace wishes ill omens, including a vixen 🦊and grey she-wolf 🐺, on the impious. .
.
Augury is the divination from auspices or omens, and ancient augury was particularly attentive to the direction and movements of animals. Following Roman augural tradition, Horace has these ill omens appear on the right.  This is opposite to Greek augural convention of having ill omens appear to the left and good ones to the right.
.
Folklore lesson for the week: Reading the signs is a complicated business. In the end, it's all about perspective! .
.
