Art historian Douglas Skeggs addresses the many achievements of the boisterous and energetic "Topsy", 19th-century Great Britain's most influential designer, founder of the Arts and Crafts Movement, socialist reformer, and Tennyson's heir to the position of Poet Laureate--which he declined. Topics from every period of his life are discussed in evocative detail.
