Until 2017, little had been written about Morris or Alice Meredith Williams. Now there are two richly illustrated books, researched and written by Phyllida Shaw and designed by David Grey.

An Artist’s War, The art and letters of Morris & Alice Meredith Williams (The History Press, 2017) is the story of Morris’s three years with the army in France (1916-19), told through his sketchbooks and his letters to Alice. Here are some sample pages.

This book drew attention to Alice’s life and work and Phyllida Shaw went on to write Undaunted Spirit, The art and craft of Gertrude Alice Meredith Williams (Independent Publishing Network, 2018).

Both books are available from Phyllida Shaw. They can be signed, dedicated or left blank. Please click this link to find out more
