With its radical blend of utopian socialism and science fiction, William Morris's novel News from Nowhere caused a stir when it was first published in instalments in the Commonweal in 1890. The narrator William Guest awakens to find himself in a utopian England in the 21st century. Industrial buildings have been transformed into a pastoral paradise; civilians are dressed in 14th-century costume; there is an abundance of openair markets and wooded areas and gardens; and money, prisons and divorce have been abolished. In this vision of a socialist future, individuals have the freedom to choose their own economic and creative pursuits. Two years after its initial publication, the novel became one of the first books printed by Morris's newly founded Kelmscott Press. A copy of this rare edition - only 300 were produced - is held in the National Art Library at the V&A; this publication is a reproduction of that volume. Morris oversaw all aspects of the original production, from the selection of the paper and ink to the choice of his own Golden typeface and the position of the printed matter on the page. The result was a timeless triumph in book design and making. This new edition makes Morris's design available to a wide audience for the first time.

News from Nowhere(1890) is the best-known prose work of William Morris and the only significant English utopia to be written since Thomas More's. The novel describes the encounter between a visitor from the nineteenth century, William Guest, and a decentralized and humane socialist future. Set over a century after a revolutionary upheaval in 1952, these "Chapters from a Utopian Romance" recount his journey across London and up the Thames to Kelmscott Manor, Morris's own country house in Oxfordshire. Drawing on the work of John Ruskin and Karl Marx, Morris's book is not only an evocative statement of his egalitarian convictions but also a distinctive contribution to the utopian tradition. Morris's rejection of state socialism and his ambition to transform the relationship between humankind and the natural world, give News from Nowhere a particular resonance for modern readers. This text is based on the 1891 version, incorporating the extensive revisions made by Morris to the first edition.

News from Nowhere (1890) is a classic work combining utopian socialism and soft science fiction written by the artist, designer and socialist pioneer William Morris. In the book, the narrator, William Guest, falls asleep after returning from a meeting of the Socialist League and awakes to find himself in a future society based on common ownership and democratic control of the means of production. In this society there is no private property, no big cities, no authority, no monetary system, no divorce, no courts, no prisons, and no class systems. This agrarian society functions simply because the people find pleasure in nature, and therefore they find pleasure in their work.The book explores a number of aspects of this society, including its organisation and the relationships which it engenders between people.

This book marks the centenary of the publication of William Morris' most celebrated work, the utopian novel News from Nowhere. Originally received as backward-looking and hopelessly romantic, News from Nowhere was in reality ahead of its time, articulating a coherent vision of 'how we live and how we might live' that has much in common with the views of idealists and 'green' thinkers of the present day. William Morris &?News from Nowhere:?a Vision for Our Time is a re-evaluation of Morris's ideas on such diverse subjects as love, work, revolution, architecture, economics and ecology. In the light of the breakdown of the old order in Eastern Europe and the crisis of capitalism in the West, together with the 'greening' of societies throughout Europe and elsewhere, Morris has much to contribute to the search for new ways of thinking and action, for new social and political structures, and for new attitudes to Nature and ourselves. The chapters have been contributed by Christopher Hampton, John Crump, Jan Marsh, Ray Watkinson, Colin Ward, Mark Pearson, Adam Buick, Stephen Coleman and Paddy O'Sullivan.
