William Morris Society Website Updated

We recently updated the William Morris Society website. You will find lists of Society events in the UK and US through the end of the year, the Summer 2008 William Morris Society in the US newsletter, corrected visitor information for Kelmscott Manor and Kelmscott House, and--perhaps most important--the full text of the Journal of William Morris Studies from 1963 through 2000. Soon to come: direct online ordering for publications, updated lists of Morris-related products and services, and improved images.
