In the first Morris exhibition to be held in The Attic gallery, wallpapers will be exhibited alongside Morris's poetry and selected writings, exploring the inspirations and ideas behind these iconic designs. Modern reprints of original Morris designs hang with those handprinted (using the original pearwood blocks) and books of handprinted wallpapers, including the 1960s collection of psychedelic colourways. Also on display for the first time will be the rarely seen VRI Cipher Paper (above); designed in 1887 for Queen Victoria's Balmoral Castle and printed with a fine merrino wool flock; an item not even available in the V&A's extensive archive.
