The Book Beautiful: William Morris, Hilary Pepler and the private press story marks the centenary of the St Dominic’s Press, founded in Ditchling in 1916, and examines the English private press movement in the late 19th and early 20th Century.
This exhibition brings together paintings that were collected by the gallery's first curators after the deaths of Annie and Merton Russell-Cotes in the 1920s. It features portraits, landscapes and scenes of spiritual and modern life, as well as sculptural pieces.
Displaying beautifully crafted prints and guidebooks pertaining to Salisbury and beyond, this exhibition pays homage to the exceptional skill and dedication of a quiet champion of British art and history.
