Golden Lily History
Golden Lily was designed as early as 1870, and was produced by Morris & Co. between 1880-1917 as a hand-printed woodblock paper. Like Blackthorn, it shows Morris's expansive hand with a symmetrical wandering as well as the detailed touches we associate with John Henry Dearle. It is likely that Morris designed the broad lines of this pattern, and it was finished by Dearle.
How Golden Lily Was Made
From the Morris & Co. swatchbook:
THESE PAPERS ARE PRINTED BY HAND
Hand or Block-printed Papers and Machine-printed Papers.
MORRIS AND COMPANY are often asked "What is the advantage of hand-printed papers over those printed by machine?"
HAND-PRINTED PAPERS are produced very slowly, each block used being dipped into pigment and then firmly pressed on to the paper, giving a great body of colour. This process takes place with each separate colour, which is slowly dried before another is applied. The consequence is that in the finished paper there is a considerable mass of solid colour.
MACHINE-PRINTED PAPERS are produced at a great speed, all the colours being printed at one time and rapidly dried in a heated gallery. In consequence of the speed at which they are printed, there is merely a film of colour deposited on the surface of the paper.
FOR PERMANENT USE we strongly recommend the hand-printed paper.
