The Talwin Morris Collection

Housed at BOOKHAD "a project funded by the Research Support Libraries Programme to provide support for nationwide research activities in the fields of book history and book design" this page describes a collection of 207 titles held at the London Institute. The collection contains bindings or decorations attributed to Talwin Morris, as well as those of some other designers that show evidence of his influence. To view bibliographic information about the books in the collection, visit the London Institute's library Web site and type in "Talwin Morris" as a keyword search. The library catalogue information includes detailed notes describing the cover designs, but does not provide digital images.

Talwin Morris Book Design

"A brief look at the work of Talwin Morris with publishing houses around the turn of the century." This project is centered around works held by the University of Glasgow Library Special Collection. This site contains: a brief biography; a look at the publishing house Blackie and Sons; an explanation of how books are bound and decorated; a brief examination of the Glasgow Four; and a short appraisal of the main stylistic trends which influenced Morris' book design, that of Japonism, The Glasgow Style, Symbolism and Art Nouveau. A student project completed in 2001 by Louise Fletcher in completion of the Multimedia Course in the Humanities Advanced Technology and Information Institute at the University of Glasgow. While the background material is extremely useful, none of the examples provided show citation evidence that they were in fact designed by Talwin Morris and seem to be included at the discretion of the site's author.
