Sunday Extra: What Would William Morris Say?

 
Print is dead? What would William Morris say?

“If I were asked to say what is at once the most important
production of Art and the thing most to be longed for; I should answer;
A beautiful House; and if I were further asked to name the production
next in importance and the thing next to be longed for; I should
answer; A beautiful Book. To enjoy good houses and good books in
self-respect and decent comfort, seems to me to be the pleasurable end
towards which all societies of human beings ought now to struggle.”

Thank you!
