Forty years after he first read it, Morris chose Ruskin's test for one of the first books to be published at his Kelmscott Press, using his own Golden type ... The Kelmscott Nature of Gothic encapsulates the meeting of two remarkable minds and embodies their influence on word, image and design"--Page 4 of cover
