Philip Webb was a British architect known as a founder of the Arts and Crafts movement and also a key member of the Pre-Raphaelite circle. He had a long association with William Morris and was responsible for the design of the hugely influential Red House, Morris’s first home. Webb's letters will be of interest to art and architecture historians.


"These 1100 letters from 1864-1914 are a fascinating insight into the life of a quiet, generous man. Comprehensive footnotes give context to the correspondence and the index, always vital in collections of this sort, is full and helpful."

- Penny Lyndon, The Journal of William Morris Studies

"Philip Webb's letters are endlessly informative and enjoyable, but John Aplin's footnotes are themselves a delight. Never over-intrusive, they are nevertheless an important contribution to scholarship."

- Peter Burman, SPAB, Autumn 2016
