IMAGES OF JANE
In the end we did decide to use images of Jane Morris for the advertising. Although it is more costly having to pay for permission to use famous artwork the images are so good it was difficult to reject them in the end. ASRA came up with a beautiful design for the front cover of the flyer using a very early photograph of Jane taken by Rossetti in 1858. ASRA have overlaid the photograph with a William Morris wallpaper design called marigold - the effect is strangely ghostlike, as if Jane were emerging from the wallpaper. On the back we have used the Blue Silk Dress image. We had to get permission from the V & A, the William Morris Gallery, Kelmscott Manor and the Bridgeman Art Library to use all these images. The flyers will be available next Friday.
